Three new o-hydroxy Schiff bases, 2-chloromethyl-N-(2-hydr oxybenzilidene)aniline,
3-(11-bromoundecanoyloxymethyl)-N-(2-hydroxybenzilidene)aniline and 4-chloromethylphenyl (carbamoyloxymethyl-
2-hydroxybenzylidene)aniline, used as quaternization agents for a polyetherurethane
precursor based on poly(tetramethylene oxide) diol of 2000 gmol−1 average molar mass (PTMO), 2,4-
toluene diisocyanate and N-methyldiethanolamine (1:3:2 molar ratio), have been synthesized in order
to obtain polymeric films with fluorescent properties. The structure and the photochromic mechanism
of the salicylideneanil units were investigated. The excited state intramolecular proton-transfer process
(ESIPT) with the cis- and trans-keto isomers formation as intermediate compounds and the formation of
a keto tautomer were evidenced by a large Stokes shifted emission (100 nm).
