Abstract:Novel chiral two ring compounds possessing phenylethenoate moieties were synthesized and their liquid crystalline properties determined. Some of these compounds were found to exhibit SmC * c , AF and SmC * A phases, whereas in other compounds only SmA* and SmC* phases appear. The in uence of the molecular structure on the appearance of SmC * c , AF and SmC * A phases is discussed. The basic electro-optical properties of the homologous series of ( S )-( E )-4-(1-methylheptyloxycarbonyl)phenyl 4-alkoxycinnamates… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
