Di-anil of 2-hydroxy-5-methyl-isophthaldehyde was investigated for thermochromic and photochromic properties in the solid state. The compound has been found to exhibit remarkable thermochromic behavior, due to its structural characteristics, with strong contribution of the quinoid form in the ground state at room temperature.
