Direct dynamic read-out of molecular chirality with autonomous enzyme-driven swimmers

News: This work describes a first example of autonomous miniaturized swimmers which can detect the chirality of molecules present in solution by adapting their trajectories at the air/water interface. In the presence of one enantiomer they will swimm clockwise, in the presence of the other enantiomer the motion will be anti-clockwise. See also press release by CNRS
