Enantiospecific 6π-photocyclization of atropisomeric α-substituted acrylanilides in the solid-state: role of crystalline confinement on enantiospecificity

Author affiliations

Abstract

Direct irradiation of optically-pure axially-chiral α-substituted acrylanilides in the crystalline state leads to 3,4-dihydro-2-quinolin-2-one photoproduct with an enantiomeric ratio of 85 : 15 while a racemic mixture of photoproduct is observed in solution.
