We have observed the first example of a cyclodextrin-induced color change of polymerized diacetylene film sensor. The PDA film, prepared from a diacetylene monomer containing a terminal anilide moiety was found to preferentially interact with α-cyclodextrin causing a color transition which is both time and concentration dependent.
