Rotational Dynamics of Chiral Molecules.
A.P. Blokhin and M.F. Gelin

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.
