Electrochromic Polymers

Electrochromic materials have the ability of changing their optical properties as persistent and reversible response by the application of a voltage pulse. Despite the fact that the earliest electrochromic devices are mostly based on inorganic oxides (tungsten, iridium and nickel oxides, etc.), the use of organic compounds (viologens, phthalocyanines, buckminsterfullerene, conjugated polymers, etc.), as a next generation, has opened new avenues as well as myriad of applications such as electrochromic devices, smart windows, electrochromic mirrors, optical displays, light-emitting diodes, and camouflage materials. There are some factors that influence electrochromism: coloration efficiency, high contrast, injected/ejected charge, stability, continuously variable color intensity and structural flexibility ( the ability to easily modify the monomer’s structure to obtain desired properties).
