Mesomorphic Donor-Acceptor-substituted 1 , 4-Distyrylbenzenes

Conjugated oligomers with terminal donor-acceptor substitution attract increasing attention in organic chemistry because of their outstanding and not seldom unexpected properties in materials science [1 – 4]. Although a variety of oligo(1,4-phenylene-vinylene)s with terminal donor-acceptor substitution (DAOPVs 1, Scheme 1) are known [5 – 22], the number of… CONTINUE READING
