Abstract

Molecular recognition ability is one of the properties exhibited by a composite presented here consisting of an optically active organic compound (L‐tartaric acid) and silica. It is reported that the composite formed by the sol‐gel method can distinguish the chirality of the complex tris(2,4‐pentanedionato) cobalt(III). The reasons for the differing properties of the composites formed by impregnation and the sol‐gel method are discussed and circular dichroism spectra presented.
