Twirling infrared light can probe the structures of molecular crystals and their twists, or chirality, report researchers. The researchers hope that the technique could also help diagnose harmful accumulations of twisted molecules in the body, including bladder stones, insulin fibrils, and amyloid aggregations such as the plaques that appear in Alzheimer’s disease. In a world of curled molecules, biology often favors right- or left-handed versions. Walking along the [...]
