Chirality can be observed on various levels in nature and the research related to supramolecular chirality has been received increasing interest due to the tunability of the non-covalent intermolecular interactions in supramolecular systems. The recent progress in the studies of chiroptical switch is reviewed. Chiroptical switch could be fabricated not only by chiral molecules, but also by the combination of chiral and achiral molecules. In some particular cases, chiroptical switch exclusively from achiral molecules has been realized.
