Abstract

Mutant human serum albumins accelerated the photocyclodimerization of 2-anthracenecarboxylate to afford chiral cyclodimers in 75–85% enantiomeric excesses, revealing that the mutations to impair non-productive sites 1 and/or 2 enhanced the substrate binding to site 3 without seriously damaging its inherently high photochirogenic ability.
