A new reaction model was constructed and its behavior was studied, in which an optically active state appears spontaneously. The reaction model contains a stereoselective complex formation between a chiral catalyst and a substrate, and an optically active state appears spontaneously when a steady state of L=D is unstable. On the other hand, no optically active state appears for an achiral catalyst.
