Functional Polymers: Anthraquinone-Imide-Based Dimers: Synthesis, Piezochromism, Liquid Crystalline and Near-Infrared Electrochromic Properties
F. Chen, J. Zhang, X. Wan*
A series of anthraquinone-imide-based liquid crystalline dimers with different siloxane spacers present redox activities, exhibiting intense near-infrared absorption upon reduction to radical anionic states. External pressure responsive color changes are also observed and measured.
