Azobenzenes in particular have been proved to have a robust photo-response, in which their configuration can transform between the trans- and cis-form upon UV-visible irradiation. Accordingly, azobenzene-containing molecules are frequently applied in the design of the guests, involving so-called host-guest chemistry. In this paper, a novel photo-responsive nanoring host molecule ([4]AB) has been designed by introducing four azobenzene groups onto the ring, and interactions between the designed… CONTINUE READING
