Design of new mesogenic block molecules: formation of columnar mesophases by calamitic bolaamphiphiles with lateral lipophilic substituents.


Rigid bolaamphiphiles with lateral alkyl chains such as 1 form columnar mesophases of a novel type based on microsegregation of the three incompatible parts of the molecules (shown schematically).
