May the force be with you: “Mirror-image” hairpin polyamides distinguish the L enantiomer of DNA (L-DNA) in the presence of natural DNA (D-DNA). This specificity is investigated by a molecular force balance at a single-molecule level. The “DNA balance” allows the measurement of rupture forces of match/mismatch diastereomeric complexes in a single experiment.
