Enantioselective wetting: Regulating the surface wettability of materials through chiral molecules provides new insight into the design of chiral materials. By taking advantage of a reversible conformational transition, smart polymers present an ideal platform for translating weak chiral signals into macroscopic properties of materials, thus resulting in a distinctive wettability switching driven by chirality (see scheme).
