A new dipyridylthiazolylethene (1a) and its dicationic analogue (2a), with two N-methylated pyridyl rings, have been synthesized and structurally characterized. Due to the N-methylation of the pyridyl rings, 2 a displays not only very different photochromic properties, but also undergoes a reductive ring-closing reaction to generate its closed-ring isomer 2b. Careful electrochemical studies coupled with EPR spectroscopy show that this reductive ring-closing reaction takes place when 2a is two… CONTINUE READING
