Abstract

A blue phase with a broad temperature range of about 23.0 °C is easily achieved in a hydrogen-bonded self-assembled complex of chiral fluoro-substituted benzoic acid and pyridine derivative. The success in extending the temperature of blue phase indicates that the hydrogen-bonded self-assembly is a promising new approach to broaden the temperature range of blue phases and to investigate the mystery of blue phases.
