Chiral molecules have become an important part of the pharmaceutical and agricultural industries. It's all about a small but significant difference: Chiral molecules (from the Greek cheir, or hand) occur in two mirror images which are non-superimposable - just like the left and right hand. Only one of these forms produces the desired effect in the final product. Chiral agents are used as building blocks for many pharmaceuticals and crop protection agents like herbicides, fungicides and insecticides.
