Azobenzene is a prototypical photochromic molecule existing in two isomeric forms, which has numerous photochemical applications that rely on a precise knowledge of the molar absorption coefficients (ε). Careful analysis revealed that the previously reported absorption spectra of the "pure" isomers were in fact mutually contaminated by small amounts of the… CONTINUE READING
