    Let G be a stratified Lie group and {Xj}1≤j≤n a basis for the left-invariant vector fields of degree one on G. Let Δ=∑j=1 nXj 2 be the sub-Laplacian on G. The jth Riesz transform on G is defined by Rj:=Xj(−Δ)-1/2, 1≤j≤n. In this paper, we provide a concrete construction of the "twisted truncated sector" which is related to the pointwise lower bound of the kernel of Rj on G. Then we obtain the characterisation of compactness of the commutators of Rj with a function b∈VMO(G), the space of functions with vanishing mean oscillation on G.
