Discotic liquid crystals stabilized by interionic interactions: imidazolium ion-anchored paraffinic triphenylene

Author affiliations

Abstract

Incorporation of imidazolium ion functionalities into the paraffinic side-chain termini of a triphenylene derivative resulted in stabilization of a columnar mesophase of its liquid crystalline assembly, which was retained over a wider temperature range down to 4 °C by an externally added imidazolium-based ionic liquid.
