Regioselective [2 + 2] cycloaddition reaction within a pair of polymorphic co-crystals based upon halogen bonding interactions

Author affiliations

Abstract

The realization of a pair of photoreactive polymorphic co-crystals that are held together by the combination of I⋯N halogen bonding interactions and C–H⋯Cl contacts is reported. The reactant molecule within these co-crystals is based upon an unsymmetrical olefin, namely 4-stilbazole, that results in a regioselective solid-state [2 + 2] cycloaddition reaction in both polymorphic forms. Each solid undergoes a quantitative photoreaction which yields exclusively the head-to-tail photoproduct.
