Preparation of light-responsive compounds
What is it about?
Tröger’s base analogs, as Ʌ-shaped cores, are used in the design of new photoresponsive molecules.
Why is it important?
The Ʌ-shape molecular geometry of these switchable products has enabled various useful properties including the provision of active sites for intermolecular interactions in the Trans-state. These interactions can be adjusted by switching the azo groups and can be used in molecular recognition studies.
