Abstract

The weak intramolecular F∙∙∙N and S∙∙∙N interactions in the novel pyridine-containing perfluorodiarylethenes achieved high cyclization quantum yields in solutions. While the F∙∙∙N interactions stabilize the photoreactive conformation, the S∙∙∙N contacts contribute from the energetic aspect.
