Paper Abstract

The diarylethene may undergo photochemical ring-closing reaction and both photochemical and electrochemical ring-opening reaction. Irradiation of the open form with UV light results in essentially quantitative photocyclization to the deeply colored form. The dithienylcyclopentene derivative in their ring-closed forms can undergo ring-opening upon electrochemical oxidation.
