Abstract

A novel photoresponsive organogel with a binary gelator containing 2-anthracenecarboxylic acid shows a high degree of stereochemical control, resulting in head-to-head photocyclodimers exclusively together with significant enantiomeric excess induced by the chiral counterpart of the gelator.
