The synthesis and crystal structure of a liquid-crystalline ester of 4-carboxyphenylferrocene

Authors


Abstract

Incorporation of ferrocene into a liquid crystal (see Figure) results in a material which offers the potential combination of the properties of an enantiotropic liquid crystal with NLO or magnetic activity. The compound demonstrates that monosubstituted ferrocene can be used to stabilize liquid crystal phases. Its LC properties and its X-ray structure are discussed.
