Abstract

Ultrafast dynamics of host-guest systems were investigated using the ultrafast transient lens (UTL) method. It was found that the spatial restriction and hydrogen bonding between host and guest molecules affected the isomerization dynamics and yields. The results provided the basis for controlling the molecular motions of azobenzene derivatives utilizing host-guest interactions and spatial restriction.
