The chirality-induced spin selectivity (CISS) effect introduces a coupling between the linear and the spin angular momentum of electrons moving through a chiral molecule [1]. Chiral cupric oxide (CuO) layers can be grown by electrodeposition from a solution containing chiral precursor molecules such as tartaric acid [2]. The choice of the enantiomer of this precursor determines the chiral crystal structure and the preferential crystallographic orientation.

Here, we present results from spin-resolved photoemission experiments performed with chiral CuO layers to investigate the presence of CISS. We demonstrate that the spin polarization observed in these layers can be exploited to enhance the chemical selectivity of an electrocatalytic water splitting reaction [3].
