Bending and shaping: cubics, calamitics and columnars

Author affiliations

Abstract

The mesomorphism of a series of complexes of Pd(II), Pt(II) and Ag(I) is discussed and systematic structural variations are highlighted which lead to an appreciation of important factors determining the liquid-crystalline polymorphism of these complexes. Models are proposed for cubic phase formation and the occurrence of an unusual lamellar phase in-between a SmC and a columnar phase is discussed.
