Mesophase Studies and Charge Transportation Properties of 3,6-dicarbethoxy-2,7,10,11-tetra-pentyloxytriphenylene


Article Preview

In this study, a triphenylene-based discotic liquid crystal 3,6-dicarbethoxy-2,7,10,11-tetra-pentyloxytriphenylene was synthesized. The chemical structure was characterized by FTIR, 1HNMR.The mesophases of the material synthesized here was characterized by using polarizing optical microscopy (POM), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). It was found that the compound displayed columnar phase during cooling at 164.7 °C and the columnar phase can be preserved even at room temperature. The charge transportation properties of the compound were measured by using time-of-flight method.
