Abstract

The structure of an achiral ester-lactone, C20H14O4 (1), which crystallizes spontaneously in space group P2(1)2(1)2(1), has been determined. Solid-state photolysis gives two products, one of which is produced as a racemate, while the other is formed in near-quantitative enantiomeric excess; the optical activity of the latter product probably results from intermolecular steric effects.
