Chemomechanical-force-induced folding–unfolding directly controls distinct fluorescence dual-color switching

Author affiliations

Abstract

Folding–unfolding imparts fluorescence dual color switching, thus a novel concept to switch fluorescence between two distinct colors while avoiding traditional bond rupturing and bond forming in photoswitching. Because folding and unfolding minimize the wear and tear on molecular structures, the new systems have excellent reversibility and fatigue resistance.
