Surface chiral formation of Cu films was investigated in the galvanostatic electrodeposition under a magnetic field of 5 T perpendicular to the electrode surface. The surface chirality was examined by electrochemical voltammograms of a chiral molecule of tartaric acid. The chiral induction depended on the magnetoelectrodeposition time, and this implied that the formation of the self-organized state of magnetohydrodynamic flows around the electrode is crucial for the chiral formation.
