Enhanced E → Z photoisomerisation in 2-aminoazobenzene

Author affiliations

Abstract

Theoretical non-adiabatic dynamics simulations at the semiempirical OM2/MRCI level reveal an enhanced E → Z photoisomerisation for 2-aminoazobenzene. The E isomer contains an intramolecular hydrogen bond which weakens the azo N–N bond and thus facilitates isomerisation.
