Abstract

A new class of dendrons and dendrimers containing azobenzene units (bearing up to 29 azobenzene groups for four generations) were designed and synthesized with the convergent method, which uses azobenzene derivatives as monomers and benzyl ester groups as linkages leading to photoresponsive dendrons and dendrimers with azobenzene units throughout their architecture. Photochemical isomerization experiments revealed that all of the dendrons and dendrimers undergo trans-cis isomerization by irradiation and cis-trans isomerization by either irradiation or heating.
