Solvent-dependent dual-mode photochromism between T- and P-types in a dipyrrinone derivative - Chemical Communications (RSC Publishing)

A newly synthesized dipyrrinone derivative bearing an ethoxycarbonyl group at the pyrrolic-α position exhibited solvent-dependent dual-mode photochromism between T- and P-types. While this molecule underwent thermally reversible (T-type) photoresponsive reaction in chloroform, it became a thermally…
