Dibenz[a,c]anthracene derivatives exhibiting columnar mesophases over broad temperature ranges

Abstract

We report the synthesis and characterization of a series of novel hexaalkoxydibenz[a,c]anthracenes. While the parent compound is not mesomorphic, the introduction of substituents in the 10- and 13-positions yields compounds with columnar liquid crystalline phases over very broad temperature ranges.
