The Pfeiffer Effect is an optical phenomenon whereby an optically active solute influences the optical rotation of a racemic mixture. Racemic mixtures do not rotate plane polarized light, but the equilibrium concentration of the two enantiomers can shift from unity in the presence of a strongly interacting chiral species. The effect is named for its discovered Paul Pfeiffer.
