" " Selective interactions through properly oriented functionalities allow for molecular recognition. The surface properties of this chiral monolayer show strongly temperature-dependent chiral recognition attributable to long range order.

" Mechanistic and synthetic studies of organometallic com- pounds can provide insight into olefin metathesis and ZiegelerNatta polymerization. Studies of high oxidation state transitionmetals represent opportunities for living coordinative polymerization systems.

" Asymmetric phototransformation of non-chiral molecules packing into chiral space groups can be achieved by selective introduction of a guest into a centrosymmetric host. The chiral surface of the...
