A new unsymmetrical photochromic diarylethene compound, 1-[2-methyl-5-(4-cyanophenyl)-3-thienyl]-2-[2-methyl-5-(4-chlorophenyl)-3-thienyl] perfluorocyclopentene (1a), was synthesized and its photochemical properties, such as photochromism and kinetics in solution as well as in PMMA amorphous film, and electrochemical properties were investigated in detail. The results showed that the cyclization/cycloreversion process of the compound was determined to be the zeroth/first order reaction, and the electrochemical switching property can be potential use for electrochemistry data storage.
