Abstract

Head-to-tail and head-to-head [2+2] photodimerization of an unsymmetrical olefin containing benzimidazole and pyridyl groups was achieved by irradiating Ag(I) complexed olefin in crystalline state and gel state, respectively, in stereoselective manner. The [2+2] reaction indicates that the molecular arrangement in a gel is different from that of a xerogel.
