    We introduce a readily executable method for the optical purification of 'scalemic' (non 50%-50%) mixtures of chiral molecules of opposite handedness ('enantiomers'). The method relies on the formation of two types of dimers, (R-R or S-S) 'homodimers' and (R-S) 'heterodimers.' The selectivity is...
