Abstract

We propose the use of solid solutions for the modulation of the kinetic in [2+2] photocycloaddition. Solid solutions with general formula [1H]BrxCl1‒x (1 = 4-amino-cinnamic acid; 0 < x < 1) were prepared via mechanochemical methods, structurally characterized, and found to undergo a single-crystal-to-single-crystal [2+2] photodimerization. The effect of the solid solutions composition on the kinetics was successfully investigated via a combination of FTIR and Principal Component Analysis (PCA), and the results were compared with those obtained for the parent materials [1H]Cl and [1H]Br. All systems follow the same nearly first-order law, and the overall reaction kinetics is influenced by a subtle interplay of structural and electronic factors as well as other processes regulating the formation and lifetime of the reacting excimer.
