In this work an attempt is made to compare and rationalise the structural and dynamic behaviour of some ferroelectric rod-like mesogens studied by our group in recent years, mainly by means of 2H- and 13C-nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. This comparison concerning the local orientational order, the average molecular conformation and the chiral smectic C (SmC*) phase structure, with a brief overview on the reorientational dynamic properties, allowed us to identify some common… CONTINUE READING
