Temperature dependent dielectric constant changes for salicylideneaniline (SA) were observed before and after light irradiation. The dielectric constant for a non-illuminated sample is higher than that for an illuminated one. It was considered that this fascinating observation might reflect dynamic chromophoric structural changes within the tautomers of SA.
