In the enantiodifferentiating supramolecular photocyclodimerization of 2-anthracenecarboxylate using γ-cyclodextrin with a dicationic side chain, a dramatic switching of the product selectivity and a significant enhancement of the enantiomeric excess were achieved by introducing a flexible dicationic sidearm to native γ-cyclodextrin and also by lowering the temperature and solvent polarity.
