Thus, chiral SFG spectra of biomacromolecules are less affected or distorted by signals from solvent or other achiral molecules
, simplifying the spectral analysis and interpretation.
The chiral monolayers or LB films have been reported , and we have also reported the chiral assemblies from achiral molecules
through the interfacial organization at the air/water interface [23, 24].
These so-called ferroelectric liquid crystals (FLC) are either formed entirely by chiral molecules of one handedness or, more often, by achiral molecules
doped with a small amount of a chiral, non-liquid crystalline compound.
