The science of chirality actually has roots dating back to the early 1800s, where it began with an observation in optical activity (think polarized light and optical isomers). The science quickly gained notoriety in chemistry and pharmaceuticals when chemists learned they could improve the efficacy of a formula by isolating specific molecules. Of course, chirality has also been seen in nature since the beginning of time.

The term chiral (prounced kahy-ruh l) is generally used to describe a molecule or material that is not superimposable on its mirror image. Our hands, for instance, are chiral where the left is not a superimposable image of the right. Just try using your left hand to shake someone’s right hand…it doesn’t quite work. Achiral describes a material or object that is identical to its mirror image. Interestingly enough, the word chiral is derived from the Greek word “kheir,” which means hand.
