50_03b/2011Back Cover: Effective Chirogenesis in a Bis(metallosalphen) Complex through Host–Guest Binding with Carboxylic Acids (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 3/2011)

Addition of carboxylic acids to a supramolecular host system based on a metallosalphen framework results in chirality induction. In their Communication on page 713 ff., A. W. Kleij and co-workers describe how the observed effective chirogenesis is expressed in the circular dichroism spectra of the host–guest system, and can lead to new and improved methodologies for the determination of absolute configurations.
