A study of solid state photochemical behavior of coumarins has provided information regarding subtler aspects of topochemical postulates of photodimerization. Results pertaining to geometrical criteria for photodimerization and chloro as a crystal engineering group are discussed. As a part of an attempt to correlate chemical reactivity with molecular packing in the solid state, photooxidation of diarylthioketones in the solid state has been investigated. The observed differences in the reactivity of these crystals are rationalized in terms of crystal packing.
