  1. 1.

    When their dilute solutions in organic solvents are irradiated with UV light, polyfluoro-substituted trans-stilbene undergo, in the same way as the nonfluorinated analog, a transformation into the cis-isomer, but not photocyclization.

  2. 2.

    Irradiation of a concentrated solution of trans-2,3,4,5,6-pentafluorostilbene in a hydrocarbon solvent with visible or UV light leads to its partial dimerization into the derivatives of cyclobutane. In contrast to the nonfluorinated analog, pentafluorostilbene undergoes photodimerization in the solid phase.
