The molecular and crystal structures of 1 and 2 were characterized by a single-crystal X-ray diffraction study. The formation of the cycloadduct is discussed in relation to the preferable conformation of the central C-C bond in 2, which was revealed to be in restricted rotation on the basis of the temperature-dependent 1 H NMR spectra. Thiophene derivatives show versatile photoreactivity and wide mechanistic perspectives. 1 An unsaturated bond of the thiophene ring frequently exhibits photoreactivity as a 2-electron component. A relevant example is the photoinduced electrocyclization of 1,2-di(2-thienyl)ethylenes to give a cyclohexadiene framework, which has been attracting considerable attention in relation to photochromic functions. 2 The thiophene ring of benzo[b]thiophenes also participates in inter- and intramolecular [2+2]-cycloadditions.3 We previously reported the novel intramolecular photocyclization and di--methane rearrangement of tris(2-benzo[b]thienyl)methane derivatives.4,5 In the course of our continuous study, we have now found an unexpected intramolecular [2+2]-photocyclization of 5-(2-benz
