Encapsulating propeller-like columnar liquid crystals with an aromatic outer shell: influence of phenoxy-terminated side chains on the phase behaviour of triphenylbenzenes

Abstract

Tailoring of phase transition temperatures of columnar liquid crystals by side chain variation is often associated with an undesired change in the mesophase type and/or geometry. To overcome this problem phenoxy-terminated side chains rather than alkyl side chains were grafted onto triphenylbenzenes, which resulted in reduced clearing points, while melting points were little affected. More importantly, helical columnar self-assembly was not compromised.
