Inorganicorganic hybrid photomechanical crystals of azobenzene-modified polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane (POSS)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A new class of inorganicorganic hybrid photomechanical material has been created by mono-substitution of polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane (POSS) with an azobenzene group via amide bond formation. This compound formed needle-like molecular crystals showing reversible photoinduced bending motions. This finding provides a new design concept of photomechanical materials for various applications.
