Photolysis of naphthyl esters within zeolites leads to the photo-Fries rearrangements as in isotropic solution. However, a high level of product selectivity is obtained using 'cation as the key'. A key component for predicting the selectivity of photoreactions within zeolites, namely the location of reactants, is missing at this stage.
