Abstract

Triglycine sulfate (TGS) acts as a chiral trigger for asymmetric autocatalysis with amplification of enantiomeric excess,i.e., the Soai reaction. Therefore, molecular chirality of highly enantioenriched organic compounds is controlled by a ferroelectric crystal TGS, whose polarization is altered by an electric field.
