[Extract] Chirality is probably one of the most significant topics in chemistry. The strong connection between chirality and symmetry has made it appealing from the mathematical and aesthetic viewpoints, and the recent interest in topologically chiral interlocked and knotted molecules has increased its intellectual attraction, raising the concept of a hierarchy in chirality [1]. The most fascinating aspect of chirality stems from the dynamic properties of molecules and supramolecular assemblies, rather than their static properties, because they are the cause of many intriguing and sometimes paradoxical issues. At the same time, dynamic chirality is also the most useful topic because of the numerous applications it underpins, from chiral recognition to molecular motors.
