dc.description.abstractEn el presente trabajo abordamos el problema de la relación entre química y física focalizándonos en la cuestión del isomerismo óptico y la llamada ‘paradoja de Hund’, que apunta a la dificultad de dar cuenta de la quiralidad mediante la mecánica cuántica. En particular, presentamos la solución a la paradoja propuesta desde la teoría de la decoherencia. El objetivo del trabajo consiste en cuestionar esta solución a la luz de una interpretación precisa del concepto de decoherencia. Sobre esta base argumentamos que una respuesta satisfactoria a la paradoja de Hund sólo puede brindarse desde una adecuada interpretación de la mecánica cuántica, que logre sortear los desafíos conceptuales de la teorí
dc.description.abstractenglishIn this article we address the problem of the relationship between chemistry and physics by focusing on the issue of optical isomerism and the so-called ‘Hund’s paradox’, which points to the difficulty of giving an account of quirality by means of quantum mecha-nics. In particular, we introduce the solution to the paradox as proposed by the theory of decoherence. The main goal of this work consists in disputing that solution in the light of a precise interpretation of the concept of decoherence. On this basis, we argue that a satisfactory answer to Hund’s paradox can only be supplied from an adequate interpretation of quantum mechanics, which can overcome the conceptual challenges of the theory.eng
