Abstract

Stereochemistry of the major photocyclodimer is switched from 52% anti-head-to-head to 51% anti-head-to-tail among the four stereoisomers produced upon irradiation of 2-anthracenecarboxylic acid at low temperatures by changing the solvent from dichloromethane to methanol, through a critical control of the hydrogen bonding and dipole-dipole interactions.
