Abstract

The X-ray structure of the blue phototautomer of 2-(2′,4′-dinitrobenzyl)pyridine (DNBP) produced by two-photon excitation in a single crystal is the first direct evidence of a product in the DNBP photochromic family. A nitro-assisted proton transfer mechanism is attributed to the photocoloration of solid DNBP.
