Paper Abstract

A series of photochromic diarylethenes compounds were synthesized and the electrochemistry and electrochemistry reaction mechanism properties were investigated. The cyclic voltammetry tests demonstrated that the colorless open-ring isomers were assigned to the unique oxidation process, but the color closed-ring isomers of these compounds were assigned to two oxidation processes. In addition, the electrochromism of diarylethene compound is observed in solution: The closed-ring reaction can be triggered by electrochemical oxidation, while the open-ring reaction must be photochemically driven. These oxidation processes properties can be useful as the oxidation processes electrochemical switching and the oxidation electrochemical switching properties of these different diarylethene isomers can be potential for electrochemistry data storages.
