Abstract

Spiropyrans (NIPS and SIPS), naphthopyrans or chromenes (CHRI) and spirooxazines (NOSI) have been extensively researched over the past five decades because or their properties of photochemical and thermal optical switch-ability. Their photochemical and thermal transformations from an ultraviolet (UV)-light-absorbing state to a visible-light-absorbing state can be harnessed for many practical applications.
