The photochromism of [7′-hydroxy-8′-formyl-3-methyl-4-oxospiro[1,3-benzoxazin-2,2′-[2H-1]benzopyran],SP(I),[7′-hydroxy-8′-formyl-3-benzyl-4-oxospiro[1,3-benzoxazin-2,2′-[2H-1]benzopyran] SP(II) and their coordination with Tb3+and Sm3+ ions have been studied in DMF. UV/vis induced-color development due to heterolytic bond cleavage of SP(I) and SP(II) is greatly influenced by complexation with the lanthanide ions. The irradiation-induced color enhancement due to ring opening and thermal decoloration of the open forms of SP(I), SP(II) follows first-order kinetics. Physical characteristics of the studied systems such as colorability and relaxation time of thermal bleaching parameters were determined. Moreover, light-energy transfer-induced luminescence of lanthanide ions via coordination with the two spirobenzoxazines was monitored.
