Ultrafast irreversible phototautomerization of o-nitrobenzaldehyde

Author affiliations


o-Nitrobenzaldehyde is photolabile because of an irreversible phototautomerization, whereas comparable aromatic compounds function as photoprotectors because the tautomerization is reversible. In this experimental and theoretical study we track down the cause of this difference to the electronic changes that occur during the tautomerization.
