Role of free space and weak interactions on geometric isomerization of stilbenes held in a molecular container.


Photochemical geometric isomerization of olefins is long known to depend on the medium in which it occurs. Highest selectivity occurs in flexible biological systems as well as in inflexible crystals. We present results in this report that suggest the isomerization is selective even in an isotropic flexible aqueous medium provided it occurs within an… (More)
