Abstract: Parity violation PV effects in chiral molecules have so far never beenexperimentally observed. To take this challenge up, a consortium of physicists,chemists, theoreticians and spectroscopists has been established and aims atmeasuring PV energy differences between two enantiomers by usinghigh-resolution laser spectroscopy. In this article, we present our commonstrategy to reach this goal, the progress accomplished in the diverse areas,and point out directions for future PV observations. The work of Andr\-e Colleton bromochlorofluoromethane enantiomers, their synthesis and their chiralrecognition by cryptophanes made feasible the first generation of experimentspresented in this paper.
