This complexation between the two molecules plays an important role in the conformational change upon thermochromism. By heating and cooling the CaF2 substrate, we observed the FTIR spectra at RT.
This is based on the observations of temperature-dependent screening effects and thermochromism using high-resolution photoemission [2].
In addition to optical transitions induced by heating (thermochromism) or solvent quality changes (solvatchromism), novel phenomena have been generated including the detection of ions (ionochromism), UV radiation (dual photochromism) and molecular recognition of chemical or biological moieties (affinitychromism).
Thermochromism refers to the phenomenon of color changes by the agency of heat.

In order to provide 100 percent control of the exact product colour shade during the injection moulding of plastic parts, German company SKZ (SOddeutsche Kunststoff-Zentrum) has developed and tested a method to correlate the difference in colour of an object at different temperatures (thermochromism behaviour).
