Abstract

A single crystal of the cis-dimer of nitrosobenzene was directly observed by photocrystallography to transition to a pair of monomers and reversibly redimerize. The remarkable displacement of the nitrogen atoms within the crystal - moving a total distance of 2.97(5) Å for the two atoms - suggests that the breadth of solid-state photochemical reaction systems susceptible to X-ray diffraction studies need not be limited to those with very small atomic displacements.
