NIR chiroptical switching: The first demonstration of significant chiroptical switching in the NIR spectral region of 700-2000 nm (see figure) is made with novel redox-active chiral molecules. These are designed according to a newly established unambiguous structural model correlating chiroptical properties with geometric structures. (Graph Presented)
