Abstract

original image

Mischen und schütteln: Lipidgepackte zweikernige Ruthenium(II,III)-Komplexe in gemischtvalentem Zustand Klasse III reagieren auf externe Stimuli wie Schütteln mit einem reversiblen hypochromen Effekt. Der Vorgang, der auf die Ausrichtung von Übergangsdipolmomenten zurückzuführen ist, wird von Strukturübergängen zwischen röhren- und bänderförmigen Morphologien begleitet (siehe Schema).
