Recently, we reported that pybox or bzpybox ligands form 2:2 ladder-type complexes with oligomeric secondary dialkylammonium salts. In this report, we demonstrate control of photodimerization of cinnamoyl group by introduction to the Bzpybox ligand. Photo-irradiation of the 2:2 ladder complex of cinnamoyl-modified Bzpybox with dimeric secondary dialkylammonium produced efficiently the photodimer under the dilute condition that could not form the dimers without templates. Therefore, this should be supramolecular control of 2 + 2 photodimerization.
