Abstract: Several salts of trans-2-(4-pyridyl)-4-vinylbenzoic acid (HPVBA) obtained by reacting with inorganic acids and organic diamines are discussed in the context of their solid state packing and photoreactivity. The acids CF 3CO 2H, HClO 4, HNO 3, H 2SO 4 produced salts where H 2PVBA + cations are oriented parallel in head-to-tail (HT) fashion, however, the trifluoroacetate salt did not undergo photodimerization. The head-to-tail (HT) parallel orientation was inversed to head-to-head (HH) orientation by incorporating excess H 2SO 4 during salt formation. Thus two stereoisomers viz. HT- and HH-dimers were obtained from salts derived from same salt-former. Salts were also made exploiting carboxylic acid functionality by employing ethylenediamine, 1,3-diaminopropane, 1,4-diaminobutane and it was found that only the salt obtained with 1,4-diaminobutane undergo photodimerization. In an analogy, it is shown that in spite of poor predictability, the strategy of salt formation works well and has significant impact in the synthesis of functional cyclobutane derivatives.
