Synthesis and Properties of a Blue Photochromic Diarylethene Derivative
A new blue photochromic diarylethene compound, 1-[2-methyl-5-aldehydeyl-3-thienyl]-2- [1,2-dimethyl-5-cyanoyl-3-pyrroleyl]perfluorocyclopentene (1a), was synthesized and its photochemical properties, such as photochromism in solution and in PMMA amorphous film, fluorescence and optical storage properties were investigated in detail. The results showed that it can be useful in fluorescence molecule switch, scale optoelectronics and potential use for data storage.
