Photoswitchable catalysis by a self-assembled molecular cage

By Ray Dinardi and others at
LogoUniversity of New South Wales
A heteroleptic [Pd2L2L'2]4+ coordination cage containing a photoswitchable azobenzene-derived ligand catalyzes the Michael addition reaction between methyl vinyl ketone and benzoyl nitromethane within its cavity. The correspond-ing homoleptic cages are catalytically inactive. The heteroleptic cage can be reversibly disassembled and reassembled using 530 nm light and 405 nm light, respectively,... Show more
