We chose this article because it shows many surprising examples of chirality and because we love our Clever Pictures, where we describe things in images.

The article describes in pictures what chirality is and where you can find it in chemistry, in nature, and in everyday life and how chirality has, for example, influenced architecture.

Can you say a few words about yourself, please?

I have been the Editor-in-Chief of ChemViews Magazine, the magazine of ChemPubSoc Europe, since 2010.
