|Title:||Quantum chemical modeling and preparation of a biomimetic photochemical switch||Authors:||Lumento, F.
|Issue Date:||2007||Project:||None||Journal:||ANGEWANDTE CHEMIE. INTERNATIONAL EDITION||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.
