This chapter outlines fundamental principles of polymeric materials that exhibit photochromic properties, that is the reversible transformation of a material by the absorption of electromagnetic radiation manifested by color changes. The role of the environment and the kinetics of photochromic transitions is outlined in the context of four major groups of compounds: azobenzenes, spyropirans, diarylethenes and fulgides.
