New SmCG phases in a hydrogen-bonded bent-core liquid crystal featuring a branched siloxane terminal group.

Abstract

In this study, we synthesized three analogous bent-core molecules, a hydrogen-bonded complex and a covalent-bonded compound with branched siloxane units (H-SiO and C-SiO, respectively) and a hydrogen-bonded complex with an alkyl unit (H-Alk), and investigated the effects of the hydrogen bonding and branched siloxane terminal units on their mesomorphic… (More)
