Core-to-core dimers forming switchable mesophase

Author affiliations


We report structurally new type of dimers composed of bent-core molecules connected through their central cores by an alkylene spacer. Various self-assembling structures are discovered when prolonging the terminal alkyl chains in arms. Among diverse mesophases, the antiferroelectric type of switching under an applied electric field is observed.
