4,4′-Bithiazole-based tetraarylenes: new photochromes with unique photoreactive patterns

Author affiliations

Abstract

Five 4,4′-bithiazole-based tetraarylenes were prepared and their photochromic behavior investigated. With their 1,3,5,7-octatetraene photoreactive backbone, they offer not only more available sites for further functionalizations, but also a novel design principle for the development of a new class of biphotochromes.
