New dendrimers with azobenzene central linkers were prepared and their photoresponsive behavior demonstrated. The rates and activation energies of the thermal cis-trans isomerization of a series of dendrimers of increasing size illustrate the insensitivity of the photoresponsive behavior of the azobenzene with respect to the nature of the attached dendritic fragment.
