Synthesis and Mesomorphic Properties of Three-Ring Containing Bent-Core Liquid Crystal 1,3-Phenylene-bis(4-butoxybenzylideneamine)
A three-ring containing bent-core compound 1,3-phenylene-bis(4-butoxybenzylidene amine) was synthesized and characterized with differential scanning calorimetry and polarized optical microscopy. It exhibited mesophases in the temperature range of 48-54oC for the first cyclic heating and cooling. Our results demonstrated that three-ring containing bent-core molecules can form mesophases.
