Synthesis and characterisation of novel chiral smectic liquid crystalline elastomers containing menthol dimer-type side chain

Ying Jiang, Yiming Gao, Zirui Lin, Guiyang Yan, Jiwei Wang & Jiusheng Li
A series of siloxane-based chiral smectic liquid crystalline elastomers (ChSLCEs) formed by a dimer-type smectic monomer (M1), a dimer-type chiral smectic monomer (M2) and a smectic cross-linker (CL) were reported. M1 and M2 were both new liquid crystals with dimer structures, and their chemical structures and purities were characterised by Fourier transform infrared spectra and 1H NMR. The thermal stability and mesomorphism of monomers, cross-linker and ChSLCEs were examined by different analytical techniques. The results...

Synthesis and mesomorphic properties of benzoxazole derivatives with lateral multifluoro substituents

Qiang Weng, Longyan Duan, Pei Chen, Dingqian Shi, Aiai Gao, Xinbing Chen & Zhongwei An
Fluorinated aromatics is generally chosen as mesogenic cores to design novel liquid crystal compounds. Here, a series of benzoxazole derivatives with laterally multifluorinated biphenyl units, 2-(3′,3-difluoro −4′-alkoxy-1,1′-biphenyl-4-yl)-benzoxazole derivatives (coded as nPF(3)PF(3)Bx), are synthesized and characterized, where methyl and nitro moieties are selected as terminal groups to investigate the effects of different polar substituents on the liquid crystal properties. The compounds nPF(3)PF(3)Bx show enantiotropic mesophases with mesophase ranges of 0–40°C and 0–63°C on heating and cooling...

Retrievable inferior vena cava filter utilization in obstetric patients

Amihai Rottenstreich, Yosef Kalish, Uriel Elchalal, Alexander Klimov & Allan I. Bloom
Objectives: The objective of this study is to evaluate patterns of use and outcomes of retrievable inferior vena cava filters (rIVCF) in obstetric patients. Methods: A single center review of consecutive patients who underwent rIVCF placement during pregnancy/postpartum in 2005–2016. A pooled analysis of the relevant cases in the English literature was conducted. Results: The current cohort comprised 24 women, median age 27 [interquartile range 24–30] years. Among 10 filters placed during pregnancy, the most...

Synthesis and properties of (−)-menthol-derived chiral liquid crystals by introducing adipoyloxy spacer between mesogenic core and chiral menthyl

Zhao-Xia Zhu, Cong-Cong Luo, Ji-Wei Wang, Jian-She Hu & Ying-Gang Jia
A homologous series of new chiral liquid crystal compounds, M6BnB (n = 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18), with varying length of n-alkoxy chains at one end, was formed by covalently linking a chiral (−)-menthyl with biphenyl-benzoate via adipoyloxy spacer group. A combination of analysis methods such as Fourier transform infrared, 1H NMR spectra, differential scanning calorimetry, polarised optical microscopy and X-ray diffraction was carried out to systematically investigate their phase structures and phase...

Effect of spacer length on mesomorphic behaviours of chiral liquid crystal compounds containing (-)-menthyl

Cong-Cong Luo, Qing-Lin Meng, Ji-Wei Wang, Gui-Yan Yan & Ying-Gang Jia
A homologous series of new chiral liquid crystal compounds, MnBEB (n = 4–10), was prepared by covalently linking a chiral (–)-menthyl with biphenyl-benzoate via a dicarboxylic spacer of varying length and parity. A combination of analysis methods, such as FT-IR, 1H NMR spectra, differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), polarised optical microscopy (POM) and X-ray diffraction was carried out to systematically investigate their phase structures and phase transition behaviours. The length and parity of the flexible spacers has a...

Photoresponsive iodine-bonded liquid crystals based on azopyridine derivatives with a low phase-transition temperature

Meiling Du, Luhai Li, Jingting Zhang, Kexuan Li, Meijuan Cao, Lixin Mo, Guosheng Hu, Yinjie Chen, Haifeng Yu & Huai Yang
Halogen bonding interactions in the formation of liquid crystalline phases have been recognised in recent years. Here, we report a novel series of iodine-bonded liquid crystals using 1,2-diiodotetrafluorobenzene (1,2-DITFB) and azopyridine derivatives (AnAzPy), showing a smectic A phase and concurrent photoresponsive behaviour. These were characterised by using a polarising optical microscope, differential scanning calorimetry and UV-vis absorption spectroscopy. The formation of iodine bonding in the complexes was confirmed by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and Raman spectroscopy....

Molecular symmetry effects on the stability of highly ordered smectic phases

David F. Ester & Vance E. Williams
In an effort to control the phase ranges of highly ordered smectic phases, we examined the impact of molecular symmetry on phase behaviour of a series of 12 symmetrical and unsymmetrical 4,4′-dialkanoyloxybiphenyl derivatives. Combined differential scanning calorimetry, polarised optical microscopy, and X-ray diffraction studies indicated that the compounds studied formed smectic F liquid crystals, and in some cases, G phases at lower temperatures. Although the clearing temperatures were largely unaffected by molecular symmetry, the transitions...
