Novel N-acyl and N-acyloxy dimeric 4-phenyl-1,4-dihydropyridines are given by solid-state photodimerization of their monomeric educts in excellent yields. The existence of rotamers was demonstrated by 1H NMR spectroscopical measurement at certain temperatures and additionally supported by X-Ray crystal structure analysis of centrosymmetrical cage-dimeric N-acetyl-3,5-dimethoxycarbonyl-4-phenyl-1,4-dihydropyridine (3b). Topochemical investigations by X-Ray crystal structure analysis prove the formation of anti-dimeric N-Boc-3,5-dimethoxycarbonyl-4-phenyl-1,4-dihydropyridine (4e) to be controlled by the nearest distance of potentially reacting double bonds with 3.667(3) Å.
