A new dipyridylthiazolylethene (1a) and its dicationic analogue (2a), with two N-methylated pyridyl rings, have been synthesized and structurally characterized. Due to the N-methylation of the pyridyl rings, 2a displays not only very different photochromic properties, but also undergoes a reductive ring-closing reaction to generate its closed-ring isomer 2b. Careful electrochemical studies coupled with EPR spectroscopy show that this reductive ring-closing reaction takes place when 2a is two-electron reduced. DFT calculations suggest that such a ground-state electrocyclization is driven by a very large stabilization of the reduced closed-ring isomer 2b relative to the reduced open-ring isomer 2a. In addition, 2b exhibits two successive and reversible one-electron reductions at half-wave potentials of 0.04 and -0.14 V versus SCE and a redox modulation as large as 1 V is achieved when passing from 2a to 2b.
