Sažetak

The concept of topological chirality is traced from its historic origins to its present-day connection to chemistry. In contrast to geometrical chirality, the topological chirality of molecules depends on models of bonding and is not directly tied to experimentally observable chirality phenomena. Nevertheless, studies dealing with the topological chirality and achirality of molecular graphs have played a significant role in an area where chemistry and topology intersect.
