Columnar liquid crystals based on the lower rim functionalization on resorcin[4]arene core


Title variants

Languages of publication



Lower rim functionalized resorcin[4]arene derivatives were synthesized by four different n-alkyl chain spacers. All four derivatives have been characterized by using Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) and Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopic technique. The liquid crystalline properties of these synthesized compounds were studied by POM investigation. All derivatives exhibited columnar hexagonal type mesophase with broad temperature range. The mesomorphic properties were further influenced by variable side alkoxy chain (-OR). Compounds CR1 showed higher temperature range mesophase as compared to compound CR4.
