Fast isomerizing methyl iodide azopyridinium salts for molecular switches.

Abstract

The usefulness of azopyridinium methyl iodide salts for designing new promising light-controlled molecular switches is presented. Large absorbance changes have been produced in the samples by irradiation with light at lambda = 355 nm. The thermal recovery of the initial state took place completely within 130-450 ms, which is much faster than that reported… (More)
