Photomechanical bending of salicylideneaniline crystals

Author affiliations

Abstract

Platelike microcrystals of N-3,5-di-tert-butylsalicylidene-3-nitroaniline repeatedly bend and straighten upon alternate irradiation with UV and visible light. The mechanism of bending was elucidated by X-ray crystallographic analyses before and after photoirradiation.
