Fully independent photochemical reactivity in one molecule

Author affiliations

Abstract

We introduce a chemically λ-orthogonal bichromophore triggered simply by different colours of light, enabling two different photochemical reactions in one molecule. Uniquely, the short wavelength (λ = 314 nm) does not trigger the red-shifted reaction system (λ = 416 nm), opening possibilities for the light controlled gating of specific molecular sites independent of wavelength.
