Luminescence and photochemical properties of hydrazones of aromatic aldehydes

  • Published:
Russian Journal of General Chemistry Aims and scope Submit manuscript


Luminescence and photochemical properties found by us earlier for several hydrazones of aromatic aldehydes have been shown to be characteristic also of other compounds of this class. The structure of the product of reversible photochemical reaction of hydrazones of aromatic aldehydes is explained by specific interactions between the lone electron pairs of the two vicinal nitrogen atoms in the molecule of hydrazine. Compounds possessing photochromic properties have been suggested and prerequisites of application of luminescent hydrazones as luminophors have been formulated.
