Control over Unfolding Pathways by Localizing Photoisomerization Events within Heterosequence Oligoazobenzene Foldamers
Z. Yu, S. Hecht – 2013
From the inside out or from the outside in? Two photoswitchable foldamers that incorporate azobenzene moieties as the energy-acceptor units have been designed. The pathway of helix unfolding can be controlled by localizing these photoinduced triggers either at the core or at the termini of the helix.
