Three novel aqueous soluble fulgimides, trifluoromethyl carboxylic acid indolylfulgimide 4, dicarboxylic acid indolylfulgimide 5, and carboxylic acid indolylfulgimide 6, were synthesized. Both 4 and 5 can switch back and forth between open and closed forms upon illumination with specific wavelengths of light, whereas 6 can only switch from the closed form… CONTINUE READING
