Abstract

Trisubstituted olefins are reactants in template-directed, solid-state [2+2] photocycloaddition reactions. Whereas hydrogen-bond-based templates afford crystalline assemblies with olefins that are photostable, AgI coordination results in carbon–carbon double bonds that react stereoselectively and result in quantitative yield.
