Two enantiomers were observed by Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM) when meta-iodopyridine was physisorbed on a 4.6 K Cu(110) surface. The chirality of the reagent was retained in the products of the electron-induced reaction. Dynamical calculations showed this to be a consequence of reaction occurring on one side of the mirror plane.
