We investigate the chiral structure of local vector and axial-vector tetraquark currents, and study their chiral transformation properties. We consider the charge-conjugation parity and classify all the isovector vector and axial-vector local tetraquark currents of quantum numbers I G J PC =1−1−+, I G J PC =1+1−−, I G J PC =1−1++ and I G J PC =1+1+−. We find that there is a one to one correspondence among them. Using these currents, we perform QCD sum rule analyses. Our results suggest that there is a missing b 1 state having I G J PC =1+1+− and a mass around 1.47–1.66 GeV.
