Abstract:
The synthesis and some basic physical properties of 3 new liquid crystals are reported. Each of these compounds was synthesized in both pure chiral and racemic versions. A mixture of the chiral and racemic versions of a compound produces a chiral nematic liquid crystal which behaves as a 1 component system in which the torsion of the helical structure varies linearly with composition, while other thermodynamic properties are independent of composition.
