Unfortunately, a corollary of this property is that some E vitamins are photolabile and are subject to photodegradation .

The presence of carbonyl groups in a degraded polymer indicates that oxidation has occurred and that the material is vulnerable to further degradation because these groups are photolabile (Feldman 2002).
To eliminate interference from nonbilirubin pigments, my colleagues and I (2) exploited the fact that bilirubin is highly photolabile whereas interfering chromagens such as hemoglobin and methemoglobin are remarkably photostable.
Those indoxyls, which have substituents in the 2-position, are oxidized to indoleninones that dimerise to give the green photolabile tyriverdin.
Masscode tags have a modular structure, including a tetrafluorophenyl ester for tag conjugation to primary amines; an o-nitrobenzyl photolabile linker for photoredox cleavage of the tag from the analyte; a mass spectrometry sensitivity enhancer, which improves the efficiency of atmospheric pressure chemical ionization of the cleaved tag; and a variable mass unit for variation of the cleaved tag mass (8,10-12).
Thin-film composite membranes are fabricated by the interfacial polymerization of monomers on the surface of a porous support membrane; including a photolabile mobile group in one of the membranes allows subsequent modification of the membrane surface properties, hence influencing membrane performance flux and separation).
