We report fabrication of photoinduced-electrochromic (or photochromic) organic nanoparticles that can be regarded as a new class of photo-switchable nanomaterials. Ion association between dicationic benzyl viologen (BzV2+) and tetraphenylborate anion (TPB-) in water produces organic ion-pair charge-transfer-type (IPCT) nanoparticles with a mean diameter of 15-20 nm. Electrostatic binding of BzV2+ ...

We hypothesized that use of a channel blade with pre-loaded endotra...
