Photoinduced isothermal phase transitions of liquid-crystalline macrocyclic azobenzenes

Author affiliations

Abstract

Liquid-crystalline macrocyclic compounds, tethered by two or three azobenzenes bearing alkoxy side chains, exhibit isothermal phase transitions from liquid-crystal to isotropic as well as from crystal to isotropic phases upon light irradiation due to the drastic conformational change of their macrocyclic backbone.
