Abstract
A new photochromic diarylethene bears two chiral carbon atoms was designed and synthesized. This compound keeps in liquid state at room temperature which is the first example for 1,2-dithienylalkene derivatives to our knowledge. Owning to the liquid state, this compound undergoes a much faster reversible photochromic reaction than some 1,2-dithienylalkene derivatives in solid state, at ambient temperature. In addition, the fluorescence property and the uses of this compound in photo switches and non-reductive storage material were discussed.
