Abstract

original image

Near…far…wherever you are! Two chiral residues at the N-terminus of a helical foldamer are sufficient to induce a significant helical screw-sense preference. The capacity of this helix to transmit stereochemical information is exemplified by highly stereoselective transformations conducted over nanometer distances.
