The novel metacyclophanes with chalcone moieties were synthesized by Claisen-Schmidt condensation. These α,β-unsaturated ketones were photoisomerized from the all-trans configuration to the partial trans configuration by 365 nm light irradiation, and then, these cis photoisomers were thermally reversed

Keywords: α, β-unsaturated ketone, Aldol reaction, chalcone, Claisen-Schmidt condensation, metacyclophane, photoisomerization
