Solvent effects on the time-dependent photoisomerization of methyl retinoate.


The photoisomerization of methyl all-trans-retinoate is dependent upon both solvent polarity and irradiation time. The all-trans-isomer isomerizes most rapidly in solvents of high polarity. Methyl 11-cis-retinoate is maximally produced after three hours in dimethyl sulfoxide, while it is not formed to an appreciable extent in heptane. Methyl 13-cis… (More)
