A reversible nanoswitch as an ON–OFF photocatalyst

Author affiliations

Abstract

The two states of a new nanomechanical switch were quantitatively and reversibly populated in several subsequent switching cycles using either Cu+ or cyclam as chemical inputs. State II was demonstrated to cistrans isomerise diazastilbene upon irradiation selectively in the presence of stilbene, and even to operate as a photocatalyst.
