New Liquid Crystalline Tolanes from (-)-Menthone

Abstract

Synthetic manipulations were carried out with the aim of obtaining an advanced linear fragment for production of thermotropic liquid crystals. The chiral fragment synthesised was introduced in a tolanbenzoate mesogenic core by coupling of Sonogashira. The nal chiral tolans showed smectic A and C and nematic liquid crystalline phases. The crystallographic… (More)
