    Abstract

    A mesostructured siloxane-based hybrid film is formed by the self-assembly of cubic, double-four-ring (D4R) siloxanes mono-functionalized with azobenzene. The azobenzene groups in the film exhibit reversible and a high degree of transcis isomerization upon UVvis irradiation. The bulky D4R cages play an important role in both the formation of cylindrical assemblies and the improvement of the photoisomerization behavior as compared with conventional azobenzenesiloxane hybrid materials.
