Azobenzene: Research Progress and its Reflections in Applications (pp. 1-28) $100.00
Authors:  (Mihaela Homocianu, Nicusor Fifere and Anton Airinei, “Petru Poni” Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry, Iasi, Romania)
In this chapter, an overview regarding research progress and its
reflections in applications of azobenzene-containing derivatives is
presented. Azobenzene (AZB) is a chromophore which overtime have
been incorporated into a variety of functional forms (functional
monomers, polymer networks, dendrimers, supramolecular architectures,
azobenzene functionalized-nanoparticles or molecular glasses) to meet
various applications. These materials represent one of the most academic
and industrial important classes of stimuli-responsive systems. The
stimuli-response is a desired feature of the many smart materials.
Generally, the smart materials used in the development of technology
required high sensitivity to external stimuli, such as pH, light variations,
temperature, electrical field, chemical and/or in the presence of external
interfering substances. The physicochemical properties of these materials
can be modulated under the action of these stimuli. Some recent
challenges on the study of properties and technical advances of the AZBcontaining
materials were discussed. The main properties of these
materials are based on the interesting photochemistry of these
compounds. The chemical and physical factors that affect their
photochemistry were analyzed. Furthermore, understanding of the
photochemistry of stimuli-responsive AZB-containing compounds is
important to consider and to explore their potential applications (e.g., data
storage, molecular photoswitches, light controllable gels and
photomechanical actuators). This chapter will provide an overview of the
development of the AZB-containing materials, general background on the
photoinduced phenomena and photoresponsive properties of different
AZB-containing materials, and several literature examples with AZB
derivatives and their potential applications are discussed.
