The emergence of chirality, as a stationary final state, may occur in a cyclic limited enantioselectivity reaction network if an external reagent (X,Y) drives the reaction of the limited inhibition stage (see picture). An example is a scenario implying CN addition to an imine, α-amino nitrile hydrolysis to an amino acid (Strecker synthesis), and Strecker oxidative amino acid decarboxylation to the imine.
