Abstract

Dienone-ether macrocycles may be reversibly switched from the thermodynamically stable E,E,E,E-isomers, with an open central cavity,to globular,cavity-closed E,E,Z,Z-isomers by the action of sunlight. They are restored to their open forms by gentle heating,but more intense heating may result in an intramolecular reaction,closing the cavity in a less easily reversed fashion.
