Abstract

Significant advances have been made recently in generating chiral polymer surfaces and materials using a range of methods such as block copolymer self-assembly, layer-by-layer assembly and surface functionalization by polymer brushes. This paves the way for novel chiral materials that can harness and tailor chiral interactions for specific functionalities and properties in a range of biomedical and bioanalytical applications. This paper reviews these advances and speculates on the future of chiral surfaces.
