- Establishing methods for controlling aspects of large amplitude submolecular movements is a prerequisite for the development of artificial devices that function through rotary motion at the molecular level. Here we demonstrate that the rate of rotation of the interlocked components of fumaramide-derived rotaxanes can be accelerated, by >6 orders of magnitude, by isomerizing them to the corresponding maleamide rotaxanes by using light.
