CRC 1349/1: Indigo Switch for the Quantification of Fluorine-Specific Interactions (SP C01)


In this project indigo derivatives with (partially) fluorinated residues will be synthesized and the equilibrium (ratio of E and Z isomers) as well as the thermal half-life of the photogenerated meta-stable Z isomer will be measured under various conditions (solvent, temperature). In collaboration with groups from theory and spectroscopy, comprehensive insight into the energetics and dynamics of Fluorine-Specific Interactions will be gained and indigo derivatives will be optimized with regard to their switching behaviour.
