Paper Abstract

A series of structurally varied organic molecular switches have been prepared and their switching behavior examined. For thermally active compounds, the switching rates have been extracted from variable temperature NMR experiments and simulation studies. Additionally, chromophores have been incorporated for optical activation of thermally stable switches. Supramolecular architectures for constructing optoelectronic devices are also described.
