Chirality Transfer from Molecular to Morphological Scales in Quasi-One-Dimensional Nanomaterials: A Continuum Model

Wang, Jian-Shan; Feng, Xi-Qiao; Xu, Jun; Qin, Qing Hua; Yu, Shou Wen


Structural hierarchy of chirality is observable in a diversity of biological and synthetic materials and related to some unusual physical properties. The transfer of chirality among different length scales is a crucial issue of both theoretical and technological interest. In this paper, a continuum model is developed to phenomenologically rationalize the chirality transfer from the constituent molecules to geometric morphology of quasi-one-dimensional nanomaterials. We demonstrate that the...[Show more]
