A series of chalcone derivatives in which two chalcone groups are attached by alkyldioxy chains were synthesized and characterized by 1H NMR, UV–Vis, and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectral analysis. Upon the irradiation of 365-nm UV light, the chalcone groups in the molecules underwent [2π + 2π] photodimerization. The photocrosslinking properties were investigated both in solution and in polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) solid films on quartz plate. It has been found that the photocrosslinking rates of the compounds depended on the different flexibility of the functional groups, which was determined by the length of the spacer chain between the two chalcone moieties. The longest soft chain containing derivatives has a faster photocrosslinking rate both in solution and in solid film. Irradiated by polarized ultraviolet light (PUV), all of the films doped with bis-chalcone derivatives showed an anisotropic absorption property, which may give a promising application as LC-alignment materials.
