A reaction model for generation of an optically active state was studied to elucidate the necessary conditions for the appearance of a perfect optically active state, in which one of the enantiomers disappears completely. The reaction model contains multiple states and a perfect optically active state emerges only when the concentration of the enantiomer in one of the multiple states becomes zero. It has been considered that perfect chiral selection should have happened before the appearance of a primitive living system, and therefore, it might be significant to constitute a reaction model for such systems.
