Abstract:  The chiral induced spin selectivity (CISS) effect will be introduced and examples of its manifestation in molecules and nanomaterials will be discussed.  After a brief overview of the early experimental work, new experimental findings on CISS phenomena in biomolecular and nanoparticle assemblies will be presented.  Some of the implications of CISS for biology, chemistry, and technologies will be described.
