  • Five chiral Cd(II) complexes with dual chiral components have been synthesized by using a series of (1R,2R)–N{sup 1},N{sup 2}-bis(pyridinylmethyl)cyclohexane-1,2-diamine ligands with different N-positions of pyridyl rings and Cd(NO{sub 3}){sub 2}. The circular dichroism (CD) spectra and second-harmonic generation (SHG) efficiency measurements confirmed that they are of structural chirality in the bulk samples. The luminescent properties indicated that they may have potential applications as optical materials. The formation of discrete mononuclear and binuclear complexes, and one-dimensional chains may be attributed to positional isomerism of the ligands. - Graphical abstract: Five chiral Cd(II) complexes with dual chiral components have been synthesized bymore » using a series of chiral ligands with different N-positions of pyridyl rings. - Highlights: • Five chiral Cd(II) complexes with dual chiral components have been synthesized. • CD spectra and SHG efficiency of the bulk samples have been measured. • The complexes display luminescent properties.« less
  • We show that our conclusions about the consistency of massive chiral electrodynamics in four dimensions were based on the use of a peculiar, although popular, expression of the chiral triangle amplitude for massless fermions, viz., a Bose-symmetric sum of Dolgov-Zakharov poles. If the Feynman triangular amplitude is instead computed by means of standard ultraviolet regulators, no decoupling of the unphysical degree of freedom occurs , thereby jeopardizing perturbative unitarity. Our present analysis raises severe doubts about the possibility of a consistent treatment of anomalous theories in a perturbative context.
  • We show, by the Bjorken-Johnson-Low limiting procedure, that if the Wess-Zumino field is added to massive chiral electrodynamics in four dimensions, all the second-class constraints become first-class ones. However, the obtained Poisson brackets do not satisfy the Jacobi identity. This result is different from that of the theory which is originally anomaly-free.
  • We show that the models considered by Andrianov [ital et] [ital al]. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 63, 1554 (1989); and Phys. Rev. D 44, 2602 (1991)] are equivalent to other models where it is easily proved that the anomaly decouples and consequently the value of the chiral triangles amplitude is irrelvant for the unitarity of the [ital S] matrix.
  • We discuss the dynamical breakdown of chiral symmetry in a finite Abelian gauge theory using a variational approach for the effective potential for composite operators. We show that, at least in a variational approach, the fermion either remains massless or gets a dynamical mass for every nonzero coupling constant.
