Design, Synthesis and Properties of Asymmetric Substituted Coronene Derivative as Discotic Liquid Crystal
Asymmetric substituted coronenes as building blocks for preparation of materials used as functional molecular devices in the fields of self-organization, organic light-emitting diode, photovoltaic solar cell and field effect transistor are easily converted to potential interesting coronene’s derivatives. A novel kind of derivative of dibenzocoronene with perylene tetracarboxdiimide as discotic liquid crystal with two kinds of soft and long chains was designed and synthesized. Its structure was confirmed by 1HNMR and IR. Its UV-vis was measured. Its properties as discotic liquid crystal are investigated in progress.
