Paper Abstract

A novel photochromic diarylethene based on benzofuran moiety and a chlorine atom was synthesized, and its photochromic and fluorescent properties were investigated. This compound exhibited reversible photochromism, changing from colorless to violet after irradiation with UV light both in solution and in poly-methyl methacrylate (PMMA) amorphous film. Also, it exhibited remarkable fluorescence switching in PMMA film. The results indicated that the benzofuran moiety played a very important role during the process of photochromic reaction for the diarylethene derivative. Using this diarylethene 1c/PMMA as optical storage was performed successfully.
