Abstract

original image

Homochirale helikale Nanofasern (HNFs) mit verdrillt-nematischer (TN-)Konfiguration sind nach einer allgemeinen Methode herstellbar. Durch Mischen gebogener Moleküle in der B4-Phase mit stabförmigen Molekülen in der nematischen Phase erhält man die Phasenabfolge N-Bx(B4/N). Homochirale HNFs in der Bx-Phase resultierten aus diesen Mischungen, wenn TN-Zellen abgekühlt wurden. Die homochiralen HNFs wurden rasterkraftmikroskopisch untersucht (siehe Bild).
