Abstract

The intercalation of a cationic azobenzene derivative into the interlayer space of magadiite was achieved. The spectral properties as well as the X-ray diffraction results reveal that the adsorbed azo cations form head-to-head aggregates in the interlayer space. The basal spacing of the compound changed reversibly upon photoisomerization of the intercalated azobenzene.
