Matrix isolation is one of the principal tools in mechanistic studies of chemical reactions, especially of photochemical ones [1]. 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[1], or preparing a rigid polymeric plastic material from organic monomers [2].
