Deep, persistent, but structurally sensitive photoyellowing observed in photochemical studies of a wide range of arylsulfonyl derivatives of amines, amino acids and peptides can be attributed to a novel kind of photochromism in which intramolecular photoinduced electron transfer promotes the formation of a metastable cyanine-type chromophore involving sulfur d-orbitals.
