The solid state structure and theoretical conformational analysis of two enantiomerically pure bis(α,β-butenolides) with C2 symmetry have been performed. The crystal structure and calculated geometries are in very good agreement with the diastereofacial selectivity observed for these compounds in their [2 + 2] photocycloaddition to ethylene. © 2003 Elsevier Science B.V.
