The three–dimensional structure and the dynamic behavior of a molecule is important issue for regulating the molecular function or biological activity. Recently the development of functional molecular devices that undergo reversible conformational interconversion between two or more stable states when exposed to an external stimulus, such as light, electricity or a chemical reaction, has received much attention. In our investigations on the cis conformational preference of aromatic N–methylated… CONTINUE READING
