An effective trigger for energy release of vinylheptafulvene-based solar heat batteries

Author affiliations

Abstract

Stoichiometric copper(I) tetrakis(acetonitrile) is found to activate the thermal ring-closure reaction of a series of high-energy vinylheptafulvene isomers to the corresponding low-energy and photoactive dihydroazulenes, allowing the release of energy upon request.
