Light can also be used to trigger conformational changes and azobenzenes are one of the most prominent examples. An optical control over ion channels can be achieved by attaching azobenzenes to ligands. The investigation of the synthesis of azobenzenes with modified substitution patterns was conducted, among them a push-pull system designed to bring an electron-donating and electron-accepting moiety into spatial proximity upon photoswitching.
