Chiral condensed matter systems, such as liquid crystals and magnets, exhibit a host of spatially localized topological structures that emerge from the medium's tendency to twist and its competition with confinement and field coupling effects. We show that the strength...

Starting with Gauss and Kelvin, knots in fields were postulated to behave like particles, but experimentally they were found only as transient features or required complex boundary conditions to exist and could not self-assemble into three-dimensional crystals. We introduce energetically...

The chiral auxiliaries TADDOLs (α,α,α,α-tetraaryl-1,3-dioxolane-4,5- dimethanols) developed by Seebach's group have found numerous applications in asymmetric synthesis ranging from utilization as stoichiometric chiral reagents or in Lewis acid mediated reactions, to roles in catalytic hydrogenation and stereoregular metathesis polymerization.

Apart from numerous examples using TADDOLs in metal-catalyzed asymmetric reactions, Rawal recently reported that TADDOLs could be used as Brønsted acid organocatalysts in highly stereoselective hetero-Diels–Alder reactions.
