Intramolecular photo[2+2]cycloaddition of dioxinones to alkene to give eight membered lactones proceeds with complete stereo- and high regioslelctivities when an ester group presents as a linking unit between the acetal carbon and double bond of the side chain. The successful separation of some dioxinones into the enantiomers indicates the method is useful for synthesis of enantiomerically pure compounds.
