Abstract

Enantiospecific axial-to-point chiral transfer in light-induced transformations was efficient under elevated pressure at high temperatures. Model photoreactions with atropisomeric compounds showed higher enantioselectivity in the photoproducts under elevated pressure. The ee values in the photoproducts were rationalized based on the increased stability of optically pure atropisomeric compounds at elevated pressure, even at high temperatures.
