Abstract

Intermolecular H-bonding between C=O (ketone) and HO (4′- hydroxyphenyl) quenches photodecarbonylation of 2,2,4,4-tetramethyl-1,3- di(4′-hydroxyphenyl)acetone 1 in the crystalline solid state, its reactivity is recovered by co-crystallization with the small organic molecule 4,4′-bicyclohexanone.
