Abstract

This paper presents a succinct overview of recent advancesof our research groups in the field of supramolecularchirogenesis and consequent progress towards functionalchiral material. The phenomenon of supramolecularchirogenesis, which is a smart combination of supramolecularchemistry and chiral science, is demonstrated with one ofthe most representative structural motifs amongst chirogenicsystems on the basis of ethane-bridged bis-porphyrinoids,whilst further progress towards functional chiral material ismade upon chiral modification of metal surface that resultsin effective chiroptical applications including the asymmetric catalyst.
