Abstract: Molecularly imprinted cavities have functioned as a regioselective reaction field for the [4 + 4] photocyclodimerization of 2-anthracenecarboxylic acid (2-AC). Molecularly imprinted polymers were prepared by precipitation polymerization of N-methacryloyl-4-aminobenzamidine as a functional monomer to form a complex with template 2-AC and ethylene glycol dimethacrylate as a crosslinking monomer. The 2-AC-imprinted cavities thus constructed preferentially bound 2-AC with an affinity greater than that toward structurally related 9-anthracenecarboxylic acid, 2-aminoanthracene, and unsubstituted anthracene. Moreover, from the four possible regioisomeric cyclodimers, they mediated the [4 + 4] photocyclodimerization of 2-AC specifically to the anti-head-to-tail (anti-HT) isomer. This indicates that the imprinted cavities accommodate two 2-AC molecules in an anti-HT manner, thereby facilitating the subsequent regioselective photocyclodimerization
