Asymmetric photochemistry provides us with new versatile routes to novel/strained chiral compounds. Recently, much effort has been devoted to the supramolecular photochirogenesis, exploiting the chiral environment of natural and synthetic hosts, such as cyclodextrin, modified zeolite, ds-DNA and protein. Photochirogenesis with biomolecules is particularly attractive and advantageous in view of the inherently chiral, finely-defined 3D structures.
