In this study novel photochromic compound
3-[2-(3,5-bis-methoxy-methoxymethylthiophene-2-yl)-3,3,4, 4,5,5-hexafluoro-cyclopent-1-enyl]-2-methylbenzo[b] thiophene (9) has been designed and synthesized.
The aim of the research was to produce photochromic compounds
and loading them into polymeric nanocarriers.
Organic photochromic compounds
are one kind of candidates for optical memory (8), (9), especially for rewritable optical memory.
have been added to eyeglasses for darkening in sunlight.
Applied research projects now being conducted in collaboration with major industrial partners are aimed at the development of new compounds with anti-viral and anti-HIV activity, and the synthesis of novel photochromic compounds
for use in the electronics and printing industries.
