Thermochromism is the property of substances to change color due to a change in temperature. A mood ring is an excellent example of this phenomenon, but thermochromism also has more practical uses, such as baby bottles which change to a different color when cool enough to drink, or kettles which change when water is at or near boiling point. Thermochromism is one of several types of chromism. The two common approaches are based on liquid crystals and leuco dyes. Liquid crystals are used in precision applications, as their responses can be engineered to accurate temperatures, but their color range is limited by their principle of operation.

Chromogenic materials change their optical properties in response to an external stimulus. Due to their potential applications as light valve e. Commercialization of such high-tech products has already started and certainly many others will enter the market in near future. This book is the first to give an overview of the scientific and applicative aspects of the entire class of thermochromic and thermotropic materials. It discusses the origin of the thermo-optical effects at the molecular level and presents the macroscopic optical and material properties of chromogenic materials as well as their present and potential future application. With a view to particular potential applications, the book outlines the specific development strategies of these materials.

Abstract: The aim of this review is to present the actual status of development in adaptive solar control by use of thermotropic and organic thermochromic materials. Smithers Rapra Thermochromic Phenomena in Polymers The content of the present review is structured according to the thermochromic material type.. Due to their potential applications as light valve e. This mirrors the effort. Thermochromic and Thermotropic Materials: Amazon.
Thermotropic polymers automatically switch from a clear to a strongly scattering state when the temperature rises. They are therefore suitable for applications in solar, glare and overheating protection and as light guide.
