Abstract

Achiral benzophenone is one of the simplest organic aromatic ketones that crystallize in the chiral form. The absolute structure of chiral crystals consisting of achiral benzophenone was firstly determined with single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis and the absolute structure was successfully correlated with the solid-state circular dichroism spectra.
