alkene photoisomerization

https://doi.org/10.1351/goldbook.AT07320
Photochemical process with geometrical @I03295@ of a carbon–carbon double bond.
Notes:
  1. Geometrical @I03295@ of a C–C double bond is called a cis/@C01092@ @I03295@ in 1,2-disubstituted @A00224@. E/Z@I03295@ is a more general designation applying also to higher substituted @A00224@.
  2. This process leads to a @P04654@ if both isomers absorb light under the reaction conditions.
