Abstract: 
Designing and testing biomimetic switches: Multireference perturbation theory is used to model a light-driven molecular switch featuring the same photoisomerization mechanism as the chromophore of the visual pigment rhodopsin (see picture; QM/MM: quantum mechanics/molecular mechanics). By exploiting a synthetic route based on nitrilium-cation cyclization, it was shown that the designed system can indeed be prepared and characterized.
