Liquid crystalline order from ortho-phenylene ethynylene macrocycles.


Triangular ortho-phenylene ethynylene (o-PE) cyclic trimers represent a novel member of shape-persistent macrocycles. Shape-persistent cyclic structures remain of great interest as molecular components in the fields of supramolecular materials, host-guest chemistry, and materials science. Novel discotic liquid crystalline properties are reported from… (More)
