In the prebiotic atmosphere possibly photophosphorylating reactions leading to formation of inorganic pyrophosphate), formation of enantiopure molecules led to synergistic collaboration of non-linear processes, which triggered the self organization of molecules in specific-stearic position through some inter-molecular and intra-molecular interactions, and the outcome of their integrated function is the living phenomenon.
Most of the molecules in it are chiral, and asymmetric synthesis is an important means by which enantiopure chiral molecules may be obtained for study and sale.
