Mirror Symmetry Breaking in Micelles of N-Stearoyl Serine Enantiomers

Circular dichroism spectra were recorded for micellar aggregates of N-stearoyl (L or D) serine in H2O or D2O. Micelle formation kinetics differed markedly in H2O, but in D2O the enantiomers showed similar spectral characteristics. The results confirm previous observations (1) that described differences in the thermodynamic properties of enantiomers, in contrary to the reigning dogma. The comparison of spectral properties indicates that this phenomenon depends on the interactions with H2O and is not due to trivial contamination.
