Isolation and Trapping of Organic Photoactive Molecules in Silica Glass Matrices at Room Temperature
Matrix isolation is one of the principal tools in mechanistic studies of chemical reactions, especially of photochemical ones . The two routine methods employed for reaching the situation of molecular trapping and isolation in solid environments are either cooling a mixture of organic solvents below its glass-forming temperature, or preparing a rigid polymeric plastic material from organic monomers .
