Modification of chemical reactions through the use of constrained and/or organized media has attracted a great deal of attention recently. Results from our laboratory in this direction which include a study of photochemical reactions in solid state and in cyclodextrins are presented here. A study of solid state photochemical behavior of coumarins has provided information regarding subtler aspects of topochemical postulates of photodimerization. Results pertaining to geometrical criteria for photodimerization and "chloro" as a crystal engineering group are discussed. As a part of an attempt to correlate chemical reactivity with molecular packing in the solid state, photooxidation of diarylthioketones in the solid state has been investigated. The observed differences in the reactivity of these crystals are rationalized in terms of crystal packing. Though cyclodextrins have been extensively studied, very few photochemical reactions involving molecules complexed to cyclodextrins have been examined. In this connection, the utility of cyclodextrins in bringing about selectivity in photochemical reactions through the study of excited state behavior of olefins and aryl alkyl ketones has been demonstrated in our laboratory.
