Subject: 07.03.25 Chirality Symposium ++ ACS National Meeting, Chicago, IL, March 25-29, 2007
Molecular chirality manifests itself in a myriad of fields of physical, 
chemical and biological importance, ranging from fundamental investigations 
of parity nonconservation and asymmetric catalysis to the never-ending 
pursuit of the origins of life. This symposium will bring together a 
diverse array of theorists and experimentalists to discuss the latest 
developments in such areas, with topics covered during the planned series 
of seven half-day sessions including (1) the theory and computation of 
chiroptical properties, (2) linear and nonlinear forms of chiroptical 
spectroscopy, (3) chiral surfaces and structures, (4) emerging probes of 
chiral molecules and their interactions, and (5) the physical and chemical 
origins of homochirality.
