Optically active and photoswitchable Tröger's base analogs
- Azo carrying Tröger's base analogs introduced chirality, thermochromic and phototunable properties to an achiral liquid crystal host.
Light interacting Λ-shape molecules for use as molecular hinges
- Λ-shape molecules capable to interact with light and rearrange their structure are introduced.
Preparation of light-responsive compounds
- Tröger’s base analogs, as Ʌ-shaped cores, are used in the design of new photoresponsive molecules.
Ionic liquid designed for the mild nitration of aromatic compounds
- Imidazolium nitrate introduced as a new acidic ionic liquid and nitrating agent is used for the efficient nitration of aromatic compounds (even aniline derivatives).
