Abstract

A tripodal coumarin derivative shows complex photoreactivity, changing from intra- to intermolecular photodimerization with increasing concentration. At high concentration, the compound undergoes efficient photopolymerization, resulting in the formation of polymeric submicron-sized particles. The size of these particles can be precisely increased through photoirradiation, without affecting their polydispersity.
