A theory of the rotation (R) - translational (T) motion of chiral
molecules is developed, and various RT and orientational correlation
functions are calculated. It is demonstrated that the difference between
the RT dynamics of enantiomer and racemic mixtures is a direct
manifestation of the combined effect of the RT coupling and violation of
the parity invariance.
Key words:Rotational diffusion, chiral molecules.
