Controlled diastereoselectivity at the alkene-geometry through selective encapsulation: E-Z photoisomerization of oxazolidinone-functionalized enecarbamates within hydrophobic nano-cavities

Photoisomerization of encapsulated Z-enecarbamates within the hydrophobic chiral cavities of γ-CD showed higher diastereoselectivities in the photoproducts than those obtained in solution. The selective encapsulation of the enecarbamates and the following isomerization process are both diastereoselectively controlled by γ-CD.
