Recent investigations from our laboratory have described compelling experimental evidences that the use of a central 4-methyl-3,5-diacylaminophenyl platform functionalized with two lateral aromatic rings each bearing three appended aliphatic chains is well-suited to produce liquid crystalline materials, some of which carrying at the tips (A-substitution position) chelating fragments such as phenanthroline, terpyridine, alkynyl functions, crown ethers or highly luminescent subunits such as… CONTINUE READING
