Triptycenes have been established as unique scaffolds because of their backbone π‐structure with a propeller‐like shape and saddle‐like cavities. They are some of the key organic molecules that have been extensively studied in polymer chemistry, in supramolecular chemistry and in material science. Triptycenes become chiral molecules when substituents are unsymmetrically attached in at least two of their different aromatic rings. This minireview highlights the chirality of triptycenes from basics to an advanced stage for the development of functional molecules.
