Abstract

A comprehensive study of cis to trans isomerization of n-butylamine and PEG (polyethylene glycol) Schiff bases of 11-cis retinal was done as a function of the solvent polarity and other factors such as hydrogen-bonding and protonation. Steady state irradiation and different laser-flash methods were employed to the study the efficiency of the isomerization process. [...]
