  1. Abstract

    The iterative association of monomer units through noncovalent interactions often leads to chiral supramolecular polymers. Monomers comprising these materials can be further divided into those with chiral centers and those without. The latter class is often less studied but attractive since it features monomer designs with chirality at the core rather than the periphery of the molecules. In this mini‐review, we summarize the existing strategies to construct supramolecular polymers from chiral molecules with no chiral centers and offer perspectives on fundamental trends and differences between them and their counterparts with chiral centers. © 2020 Society of Industrial Chemistry

  3. Abstract

    We study the emergent behaviors of a population of swarming coupled oscillators, dubbed swarmalators. Previous work considered the simplest, idealized case: identical swarmalators with global coupling. Here we expand this work by adding more realistic features: local coupling, non-identical natural frequencies, and chirality. This more realistic model generates a variety of new behaviors including lattices of vortices, beating clusters, and interacting phase waves. Similar behaviors are found across natural and artificial micro-scale collective systems, including social slime mold, spermatozoa vortex arrays, and Quincke rollers. Our results indicate a wide range of future use cases, both to aid characterization and understanding of natural swarms, and to design complex interactions in collective systems from soft and active matter to micro-robotics.
