Ferrocene-containing liquid-crystalline dendrimers: a novel family of mesomorphic macromolecules

Deschenaux, Robert ; Serrano, Elisabeth ; Levelut, Anne-Marie

In: Chemical Communications (ChemComm), 1997, vol. 16, p. 1577-1578

The synthesis and liquid-crystalline properties of a first-generation dendritic core substituted with six mesomorphic ferrocene units are reported; the investigated compound exhibited a broad enantiotropic smectic A phase (polarized optical microscopy, DSC, and XRD studies) and good thermal stability (thermogravimetry).
