Abstract

Pseudo-achiral metal-centre driven spontaneous resolution occurred simultaneously in the formation of two Δ- and Λ-isomers of [CdBa(OBA)2(DMF)(CH3OH)(H2O)]·H 2O (H2OBA = 4,4′-oxybis(benzoic acid)), which illustrated a clear relationship between chirality and helicity: the absolute sense of a double-helix made of achiral components is induced by metal centres in the two enantiomeric forms. © 2014 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
