Board-like dibenzo[fg,op]naphthacenes: synthesis, characterization, self-assembly, and liquid crystallinity

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report the synthesis and characterization of a series of board-like (“sanidic”) compounds with dibenzo[fg,op]naphthacene cores. The compounds exhibit good self-assembly into one-dimensional belt-like structures, and also smectic liquid crystal phases typical of rod-like molecules, but with important differences ascribed to their board-like shapes.
