and discussing the asymmetric morphology of certain living organisms, such as the position of the heart and liver in humans and the exceptions to biological homochirality seen in D-Amino Acids. In addition, it explores the requirement of enantioselectivity prepared pharmaceuticals to address enantioselectivities biomolecules, a major challenge in today's organic chemistry. Finally, the work considers the possible origin of biological homochirality, as well as the outlook for future research in this area.Describes the history of biological chirality research, its possible origins, and future exploration areasDiscusses asymmetric exceptions in morphology and D-Amino AcidsExplores the critical implications of enantioselective biomolecules for preparative organic chemistry with a goal of developing effective pharmaceuticals
