Liquid assets: Methacrylic monomers bearing a long azo chromophore core (see picture) show low layer shrinkage at the smectic A to smectic C transition. This unexpected de Vries-like behavior in molecules without highly segregating elements is attractive for applications in optical devices. These monomers also show high cis-isomer contents (>96 %) after photoirradiation.
