Abstract

Pedal motion or static disorder in single-component solids containing imine groups is demonstrated. Unique solid-state behaviors including colossal biaxial positive thermal expansion in one solid and a temperature-dependent phase transition in another are discussed. Imines exhibit torsional flexibility, which differs from the isoelectronic azo and olefin groups and influences solid-state behaviors.
