Among the organic NLO chromophores, pyrazolines embedded in polymer show good optical properties, such as polarization, color change, fluorescent complex formation, polymorphism, molecular refraction and photochromism
Their topics include templating photoreactions in solutions, supramolecular photochirogenesis, the photochromism
of multicomponent diarylethene crystals, controlling photoreactions through non-covalent interactions within zeolite nanocages, and protein-controlled ultrafast photoisomerization in rhodopsin and bacteriorhodopsin.
