Author(s) from Durham


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.
