A light-regulated synthetic ion channel with hydraphile as the channel architecture and azobenzene as the regulation unit was reported photoisomerization changes the transmembrane length of the channel, thus results in regulated ion transport. The ultrafast photochemistry of a new spiropyran photoswitch (py-bips) has been investigated, revealing many advantages in the application in water over the previously studied spiropyrans. Azobenzene derivatives commonly serve as photoswitches as they can be photoisomerized between a trans and cis configuration gluazo is a photoswitchable glutamate derivative, ata3 an ampar agonist and alloswitch-1 a mglur5 nam.
