Synthesis of 6-[3,6,7,10,11-Pentakis(pentyloxy)triphenylen-2-yloxy]-hexyl Methacrylate and Its Mesophases Study
A novel triphenylene-based discotic liquid crystal 6-[3,6,7,10,11-Pentakis(pentyloxy)triphenylen-2-yloxy]-hexyl methacrylate. Chemical structure of this compound has determined by 1HNMR and FT-IR spectrum, and its mesophase was investigated by differential scanning calorimeter (DSC) and polarizing optical microscopy (POM) methods. This new compound has the unique optical properties of discotic liquid crystals because of their remarkable photoconductivity and high charge carrier mobility. Columnar discotic liquid crystals based on triphenylene show great potential as molecular organic materials for optoelectronic devices.
