This review summarizes a literature survey on chiral recognition as viewed from a theoretical point. Nevertheless, experimental results in the gas-phase are reported when they are relevant for the theoretical calculations. The review is divided into the following sections: general considerations, experiment vs. theory; pure theoretical results; solvent effects; metals as glue; optical rotatory power, and conclusions.
Keywords: Water dimer, bimolecular equilibrium, hydrogen bonds, Rectangular molecules, zwitterionic-aminoacid units
