Solvent, temperature, and excitation wavelength significantly affected the photochemical outcomes of a naphthalene–dicyanoethene system tethered by different number (n) of methylene groups (13). The effect of irradiation wavelength was almost negligible for 2a but pronounced for 3a. The temperature dependence and theoretical calculations indicated the diversity of exciplex conformations, an ensemble of which can be effectively altered by changing excitation wavelength to eventually switch the regioselectivity of photoreactions.
