A formal proof has recently been given to show that an electro-optic response of chiral molecules in isotropic media is forbidden by time reversal invariance. A claim to the contrary by Beljonne et al. for the occurrence of such an effect in second order, when dephasing terms are included, is examined critically using a quantum electrodynamics (QED) formulation.
