17 September 2002 Synthesis and photochromic properties of asymmetric diarylethenes
Author Affiliations +
Two asymmetric photochromic diarylethenes with different spectra in open and closed form were synthesized simultaneously. Irradiation of the open form with UV light results in essentially quantitative photocyclization to the deeply colored form. The compounds show attractive optical properties and are expected to be used in optical storage and photoswitch.
