Putting organic photochemistry to work: Structures composed of organic photoreactive molecules can exhibit various types of large-scale (micron to millimeter) motions. This review covers basic principles and classes of organic photomechanical materials, including polymeric materials, microcystals, and nanocrystals. Photoinduced thermal and charge-transfer-mediated mechanical motions are also discussed, as well as potential directions for future research.
