Photochemistry in an Azo-Containing Banana-Shaped Liquid Crystal

Abstract:

Article Preview

By triangular wave method, the polarization currents of an azo-containing banana-shaped antiferroelectric liquid crystal were investigated as a function of the time of 365-nm ultraviolet irradiation. Under the 365-nm irradiation, the polarization currents were observed to evolve with the time of ultraviolet irradiation until they diminished. The roles of photoisomerization, photolysis and thermolysis were discussed for the azo-containing banana-shaped liquid crystal.
