Abstract

A diamide armed with a photochromic azobenzene unit and a nucleophilic pyridyl group varied its aggregation/dissociation state depending on the trans/cis geometry of the azobenzene. The catalytic activity of the pyridyl group was closely linked to the aggregation/dissociation state and hence photoirradiation could manipulate the catalytic performance.
