Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)
We have recently reported the synthesis of suitable substituted 5-phenylazopyrimidines (see selected references for more information). Their physicochemical properties were studied using in situ irradiation NMR spectroscopy and optical spectroscopy. The goal of the current project will be the synthesis of novel molecular photoswitches based on a combination of bisazobenzenes and pyrimidines, namely bis(pyrimidinyldiazenyl)benzenes. Their synthesis will be developed and optimized and their physicochemical properties will be evaluated.
