A novel van der Waals shielding mechanism is discussed which contributes to the magnetic shielding non-equivalence of optical isomers of one chiral species in the presence of a second optically active species. It is more direct than standard mechanisms which invoke stereospecific association of the interacting molecules but appears to be of marginal experimental significance.
