An “on–off” switchable cubic phase with exceptional thermal stability and water sorption capacity

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report on the phase behaviour of a wedge-shaped mesogen, which can exist in two different states at room temperature, a stable columnar and a metastable cubic gyroid phase. The latter reveals exceptional stability and remarkable water sorption capacity accounted for by the locally-ordered peripheral alkyl chains.
