2011_17/2011Discotic Nickel Bis(dithiolene) Complexes – Synthesis, Optoelectrochemical and Mesomorphic Properties (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 17/2011)

The cover picture shows nickel bis-dithiolene compounds in which different lengths of alkyl chains are grafted on the periphery of the octa-substituted core molecule. The synthesis affords a mixture that was analyzed by X-ray diffraction. The obtained X-ray pattern at 70 °C is presented on background and is relative to a hexagonal columnar liquid-crystalline phase. Such a pattern is not observed on the corresponding pure isolated compounds. Details are discussed in the article by B. Garreau-de Bonneval, K. I. Moineau-Chane Ching et al. On p. 2663 ff. The authors thank the French National Research Agency (ANR) for supporting this work.
