We newly synthesized various sized gold nanoparticles covered with photochromic polymers consisting of diarylethenes with various structures to investigate an effect of the gold nanoparticles on the photocycloreversion reaction of the diarylethene chromophores upon irradiation with visible light. The gold nanoparticles covered with the photochromic polymers exhibited reversible changes in localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) absorption along with the photochromic reaction depending on the diameter of the particle, the distance between the gold surface and the chromophore, and the structure of the diarylethene chromophore. The rate of the photocycloreversion reaction of the chromophores around the particle was enhanced by the gold nanoparticles and the degree of the enhancement was affected by the diameter of the particle and the distance from the gold surface, while a structural difference in the diarylethene chromophore had no effect on the degree of the enhancement. The larger enhancement of the photocycloreversion reaction was observed by irradiation at longer wavelength side than visible light corresponding to the LSPR frequency.
