Chirality is of fundamental importance for life and plays a key role in biological systems and pharmacy, as well as in advanced materials. In order to the constructions of homochiral structures containing helical chains, it requires an efficient transfer of stereochemical information between neighboring helices. However, it has not been well understood how homochiral packing of helices in crystals can be induced so far. This presentation is concerned with the constructions of achiral and homochiral compounds containing helical chains.
