(Chemical Equation Presented) Supramolecular enantiodifferentiating photocyclodimerization of 2-anthracenecarboxylic acid (AC) was performed in the presence of (2S,4S)-4-amino-5-chloro-2-methoxy-N-(1-ethyl-2-hydroxymethyl-4- pyrrolidinyl)benzamide (TKS159), and its stereoisomers were employed as chiral templates. The TKS template provides us with a novel hydrogen-bonding and shielding motif for enantioface-selectively binding an AC molecule. Chiral products 2 and 3 were obtained in good enantiomeric excesses (ee's) of 40% and 40%, respectively.
