Paquette, M. E.; Kopelman, R. A.; Beitler, E. B.; Frank*, N. L. Incorporating Optical Bistability into a Magnetically Bistable System: A Photochromic Redox Isomeric Complex Chem. Comm. 2009 36, 5424-5426 (SEP 28 2009). DOI: 10.1039/b911091g
A photochromic cobalt-bis(dioxolene)spirooxazine metal complex has been synthesized which exhibits both photochromic and redox-active behavior, providing a potentially powerful approach to the development of optically induced changes in redox, magnetic, or optical properties of a metal center.
