Merten and Xu Paper Featured on the Backcover of Angewandte Chemistry Journal

The paper by C. Merten and Y. Xu entitled "Chirality Transfer in a Methyl Lactate–Ammonia Complex Observedby Matrix-Isolation Vibrational Circular Dichroism Spectroscopy featured on the back-cover of February issue of Angew. Chem. Int. Ed journal. Chirality transfer from chiral to achiral molecules can occur through hydrogen-bonding interactions. Y. Xu and C. Merten use matrix-isolation vibrational circular dichroism spectroscopy to measure the spectral signatures of chirality transfer from methyl lactate to ammonia, data which cannot be obtained in solution owing to the immediate protonation of ammonia (graphic by W. Jäger). For more information visit:
