The introduction of an ester group in the flavylium core allowed the reversible conversion between two different flavylium compounds each one exhibiting its own reaction network. An unidirectional switching cycle between 7-diethylamino-2-(4-(methoxycarbonyl)phenyl)-1-benzopyrylium and 2-(4-carboxyphenyl)-7-diethylamino-1-benzopyrylium was achieved by means… CONTINUE READING
