Novel spiro[thioxanthene-naphthopyrans] were prepared and their photochromic properties in solution investigated under UV-Vis continuous irradiation. When compared to known similar naphthopyrans these new compounds showed a significant bathochromic shift of the maximum wavelength of absorption and faster ring closure kinetics.
