The microwave specific effect on the catalytic atropoenantioselective ring-opening reaction of biaryl lactones was investigated. Under strictly controlled temperature conditions, the reaction was accelerated by microwave irradiation without any loss of the enantioselectivity. Also, the racemization rate of the atropo-optically active biaryl lactone was enhanced by the microwave irradiation.
