Photocrystallisation of the 2C-2'C dimer of a triphenylimidazolyl radical.

Edkins , R.M. and Probert, M.R. and Robertson, C.M. and Howard, J.A.K. and Beeby, A. (2014) 'Photocrystallisation of the 2C-2'C dimer of a triphenylimidazolyl radical.', RSC advances., 4 (11). pp. 5351-5356.


The structure of an unusual dimerisation mode of a triphenylimidazolyl radical has been elucidated, revealing a relatively long C–C bond. The diffraction-quality single crystals were produced under continuous irradiation by photocrystallisation in an adaption of the method that should be widely applicable to other photochromic systems.
