Conjugated molecules can be induced into a predominately single-handed conformation by chiral dopants. The chiral molecules are then self-assembled into helical nanostructures, superstructures, and even macroscopic structures. In this review paper, the principles that guide the formation, adjustment, and hierarchy of supramolecular helicity are critically reviewed. The potential application of chiral structures and areas for further investigation are also highlighted.
