The stability to visible light of five 4-diethylaminoazobenzenes was investigated in different solvents under Various experimental conditions, as well as in solid crystalline form and on dyed poly(ethyleneterephthalate). Though generally exhibiting relatively high photostability, all investigated dyes underwent photodegradation in acetone solution. Two different reaction paths were recognised in this solvent, depending on the nature and position of the substituting groups on the second aromatic ring, both involving the formation and subsequent fragmentation of organic free radicals, as suggested by the strong inhibiting effect of molecular oxygen on the photodegradation rate.
