A chiral mineral, cinnabar, served as a chiral source of asymmetric autocatalysis to afford enantioenriched 5-pyrimidyl alkanol. The adsorption structures of related compounds were observed with atomic force microscopy. Enantioselective adsorption of the asymmetric autocatalyst was found in microcrystal formations at the chiral surface of cinnabar.
