We have been developing chromic metal complexes that exhibit color and luminescence changes in response to environmental change or various stimuli. In particular, we focus on “soft crystals”, which respond to gentle stimuli such as vapor exposure and rubbing but maintain their structural order, and exhibit remarkable visual changes in their shape, color, and luminescence.
