A novel chiral–photochromic side-chain polyacrylate with azobenzene fragments in the side groups has been synthesised. It was shown that the polymer forms a smectic phase and a cholesteric supramolecular helical structure with selective light reflection in IR spectral range. Thin spin-coated films of the polymer were prepared and their photooptical and chirooptical properties were studied in detail. It was found that UV irradiation of the films led to E–Z isomerization of the azobenzene… CONTINUE READING
