Light absorption results in the abstraction of the benzylic hydrogen atom by the excited nitro group and oxidation of the alcohol group to a ketone. The resulting nitrosobenzoyl group is strongly electron withdrawing, reducing the electron density around the metal-coordinating nitrogens and reducing the affinity of the tetracarboxylate chelator for Ca2+. In the first member of this series, nitr-2, methanol is formed as a by-product of photolysis, but in subsequent members (nitr-5, nitr-7, and nitr-8) only water is produced.
