Abstract

A new photochromic compound of tetraazaporphyrin magnesium(II) appended with eight ferrocene units by ethynyl <B>TPF</B> was synthesized. Its photochromic properties and electrochemical properties were studied. As its redox potential was reversibly changed accompanying the open- and closed-ring photoisomerization of <B>TPF</B> with UV–vis light irradiation, <B>TPF</B> may be used as electrochemical switch controlled by light.
