Chiral induction: Catalytic bio-supramolecular photochirogenesis is achieved for the enantiodifferentiating [4+4] photocyclodimerization of 2-anthracenecarboxylate by repeatedly using human serum albumin (HSA) as a chiral mediator; the original high enantiomeric excess values (up to 80–90 %) are preserved.
