Electrooptic, X-Ray, and Molecular Modeling Studies of Difluoroterphenyl Ferroelectric Liquid Crystal with Mixed Alkenyloxy-Ester Terminal Substituents
Keywords: liquid crystals, smectic phases, difluorinated terphenyls
AbstractThis paper reports on the electrooptic, x-ray and molecular modeling studies of a SmC*-forming liquid crystalline compound with potential display applications. The synthesis and physical properties of this compound with two fluorines in the 3,3' positions in the terphenyl core and mixed unsaturated alkenyloxy/ester terminal groups were previously reported by our groups.
