Branching out: The synthesis and small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) characterization of twenty laterally branched mesogenic molecules, with a varying degree of flexibility in their lateral branch, is reported. The SAXS studies reveal the presence of short-range ordered smectic-like nanostructures in the nematic phase with varied tilt angles and characteristic correlation lengths These branched compounds are classified into four different categories (see picture).
