Phase behavior of discotic liquid crystalline polymers and related model compounds

Authors


Abstract

The phase behavior of liquid cyrstalline polymers and oligomer model compounds with alkylated tripheylenes (see figure) as the mesogenic core is studied using a combination of optical microscopy, DSC and 2H NMR. The information provided by NMR provides unique insights into the behavior of liquid crystalline phases.
