HS-(CH2)m-O-Azobenzene (TP 001)


Thiols terminated in photoswitchable groups can be used to prepare mixed SAMs whose surface properties change reversibly upon irradiation. In monolayers with terminal azobenzenes, UV light causes switching between trans and cis isomers, and reduces the hydrophobicity of the SAM (contact angles differ by up to 18 degrees) For details, see Evans, S. D.; Johnson, S. R.; Ringsdorf, H.; Williams, L. M.; Wolf, H. Langmuir, 1998, 14, 6436.

Note: ProChimia has extensive expertise in the synthesis of various substituted azobenenes - please inquire for custom synthesis of such compounds.
