Irradiation of 1,4-dithiin gives the cis, syn, cis-photodimer in 70-80% yield whose structure has been unequivocally established by X-ray crystallographic methods. A minor product is formed in this photodimerization which is shown to the trans, anti, trans-photodimer by X-ray structural analysis. Irradiation of the syn photodimer produces tetrathiatetraasterane in 70% yield. The structure of this product is also proven by X-ray methods.
