Abstract

To probe the role of the supramolecular steric effects and free volume on photoreactions, geometric isomerization of neutral azobenzenes (ABs) and their radical ions, generated by electron transfer with gold nanoparticles, included within an octa acid capsule, was investigated. A comparison of the isomerization of ABs that proceed by volume conserving pyramidalization and stilbene analogues that proceed by volume demanding one bond flip has indicated the differing influence of 4-alkyl groups on these two processes.
