Hello all.
I'm doing a small presentation on Chirality in my Chemistry class. As the teacher knows I'm really more of a physics/math kid, he said it was okay if I did my presentation on chirality in physics instead of the molecular stuff most people are doing. I knew a bunch before, and I've done some research since, but I was hoping you guys could tell me whether the gist of my 'presentation' is accurate enough. Here it is, and this is the shortened version of course: In general I want to make sure that a) I'm on target and b) I'm not oversimplifying. Thanks for reading, and hopefully for helping me.

The link between chemical and physical definition of chirality is not so straightforward.
Maybe the following article is interesting to you: http://qjmed.oxfordjournals.org/cont...2/793.full.pdf

As for the rest of my little blurb, would it be within reason to say more or less what I'd said previously, but instead of ending where I did talk about some of the ways molecular Chirality plays a part in molecular formation?
