Previous works of Bernd at the Humboldt University of Berlin, featuring a photoswitchable catalyst have just been published in Nature Catalysis. The diarylethene-based Bronsted acid catalyst allows both chain length (left) as well as composition (right) of formed polymers to be controlled by light of different wavelengths. Congratulations to Fabian Eisenreich and Michael Kathan.
