We have derived and investigated analytical expressions for the spontaneous emission radiative decay rate of an optically active (chiral) molecule placed near a chiral (bi-isotropic) triaxial nanoellipsoid, which size is much smaller than the wavelength. Differences in radiative decay rates of optically active molecule enantiomers located near the surface of chiral nanoparticles of spherical, prolate spheroidal, and ellipsoidal shapes have been investigated. It is shown that the change of the nanoparticle shape from spherical to ellipsoidal can lead to substantial enhancement of the spontaneous emission radiative decay rate of molecule enantiomers of one type in comparison with the decay rate of the other type of enantiomers.
