Mono-C-substitution of the 1,4,7-triazacyclononane ring induces formation of single enantiomers of Eu(III) complexes with nonadentate N6O3 ligands. The absolute configuration of each complex is determined by the stereogenicity of the C-substituent, revealed by comparison of the sign and sequence of CPL transitions for a series of complexes.
