Summary of "Computational Design and Synthesis of a Deeply Red-Shifted and Bistable Azobenzene."

We computationally dissected the electronic and geometrical influences of -chlorinated azobenzenes on their photophysical properties. X-ray analysis provided the insight that -tetra--chloro azobenzene is conformationally flexible and thus subject to molecular motions. This allows the photoswitch to adopt a range of red-shifted geometries, which account for the extended n → π* band tails. On the basis of our results, we designed the di-fluoro di--chloro () azobenzene and provided computational evidence for the superiority of this substitution pattern to tetra--chloro azobenzene. Thereafter, we synthesized azobenzene by -chlorination via 2-fold C-H activation and experimentally confirmed its structural and photophysical properties through UV-vis, NMR, and X-ray analyses. The advantages include near-bistable isomers and an increased separation of the n → π* bands between the - and -conformations, which allows for the generation of unusually high levels of the -isomer by irradiation with green/yellow light as well as red light within the biooptical window.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An approach, process, or methodology which emphasizes credible evidence and the best available scientific knowledge, judiciously integrated to achieve the best possible outcomes in structural design. For example, the design of a new OUTPATIENT CLINIC might incorporate a review of published research on outpatient clinic design, decisions on similar past projects, along with interviews with staff and consumers.

A field of biological research combining engineering in the formulation, design, and building (synthesis) of novel biological structures, functions, and systems.

Architecture, exterior and interior design, and construction of facilities other than hospitals, e.g., dental schools, medical schools, ambulatory care clinics, and specified units of health care facilities. The concept also includes architecture, design, and construction of specialized contained, controlled, or closed research environments including those of space labs and stations.

The architecture, functional design, and construction of hospitals.

The art and science of designing buildings and structures. More generally, it is the design of the total built environment, including town planning, urban design, and landscape architecture.
