Thermochromic liquid crystals (TLC's) react to changes in temperature by changing color. TLC's have Chiral (twisted) molecular structures and are optically active. Direct white light is selectively reflected by the expansion and contraction of the helix with change in temperature. (read more)
Thermochromic Liquid Crystals (LCs) can be highly temperature sensitive, change to many colors, and are more expensive than leuco dyes. LC's start black below their temperature range; go through the colors of a rainbow, and then black again above the temperature range. LC's are reversible in that they can be used over and over again. The picture shows an example of a liquid crystal sheet... (read more)
