Polydiacetylene (PDA) is a conductive polymer that has a mechanochromism. When the polymer is exposed to mechanical stresses, change in temperature (thermochromism), pH (ionochromism) etc., the structural perturbation can be seen by the change in its color. Although it presents interesting electrical and optical properties, the relationship between these signals has rarely been investigated. We studied the correlation between the electrical conductivity and the absorption spectra of PDA. Upon UV irradiation, PDA absorption spectra presented a blue shift, which coincided with the decrease in the electrical conductivity.
