Photoisomerization of Arylazopyrazole Photoswitches: Stereospecific Excited‐State Relaxation

Abstract

Electronic structure calculations and nonadiabatic dynamics simulations (more than 2000 trajectories) are used to explore the Z-E photoisomerization mechanism and excited-state decay dynamics of two arylazopyrazole photoswitches. Two chiral S1 /S0 conical intersections with associated enantiomeric S1 relaxation paths that are barrierless and efficient… (More)
