photosensitive polymer
Polymer that responds to @UT07492@ or @VT07496@ light by exhibiting a change in its physical properties or its chemical @C01282@.
  1. Examples of the changes in photosensitive polymers are a change in @MT06972@ (photoresponsive polymer), a change in its @C01282@ (photo@RT07164@), and a reversible change in color (photochromic polymer).
  2. Photosensitivity in photosensitive polymers means that the polymers are sensitive to the irradiated light leading to some change in properties or structure. It is different from @P04652@.
  3. See also: @P04585@, @P04589@.
