Abstract

Cyclodextrin encapsulation, both in the solid state and in aqueous solution brings about a remarkable regulation of the photo-Fries rearrangement of phenyl esters and anilides. In comparison to the nonselective mixture of ortho and para-rearranged isomers along with the deacylated product obtained in organic solvents, the solid \beta-cyclodextrin complexes of unsubstituted esters and anilides show a remarkable ‘ortho-selectivity’. An impressive ‘regio-selectivity’ among the two ortho-rearranged isomers is observed for meta-substituted esters and anilides upon irradiation as \beta-cyclodextrin complexes. Specific orientations of the unsubstituted and meta-substituted esters and anilides in the \beta-cyclodextrin cavity are suggested to be responsible for the observed selectivity.
