Chemistry of photoswitching molecules in the confined nanospace of aqueous molecular vessels
Reversible photoswitching molecules have been developed as promising candidates for building effective molecular motors. In aqueous medium many of such photoswitching molecules become either insoluble or stable in a particular state to abolish their reversible nature. Hence, it is a challenging task to explore the chemistry of such photochromic molecules in aqueous medium. This Frontier article discusses the recent developments in understanding the behaviour of photoswitching molecules in the confined nanospace of aqueous molecular vessels.
