Chirality induction by E-Z Photoisomerization in [ 2 , 2 ] paracyclophane-bridged Azobenzene Dimer

Abstract

We designed and synthesized a new prochiral molecule in which two azobenzene moieties were embedded in [2,2]paracyclophane and showed the chirality induction by E-Z photoisomerization. We also demonstrated the on/off switching of asymmetry by irradiation and reflux respectively.
