    Supramolecular Metallomesogens: Hydrogen-Bonded Ferrocene-Containing Liquid Crystals Which Display Bicontinuous Cubic Phases

    Massiot, Philippe ; Impéror-Clerc, Marianne ; Veber, Michèle ; Deschenaux, Robert

    In: Chemistry of Materials, 2005, vol. 17, no. 8, p. 1946–1951

    Two series of hydrogen-bonded liquid-crystalline ferrocenes have been prepared by reacting ferrocene derivatives carrying a carboxylic acid function and two flexible alkyl chains (containing n = 8, 10, or 12 carbon atoms) with stilbazoles bearing a flexible alkyl chain (containing m = 6 or 10 carbon atoms). The first family of materials (m = 6; n = 8, 10, 12) gave rise...

    Polycaténaires mésomorphes du ferrocène à liaisons hydrogènes et covalentes : obtention de phases colonnaires ou cubiques par une approche supramoléculaire

    Massiot, Philippe ; Deschenaux, Robert (Dir.)

    Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel : 2002 ; 1634.

    The aim of this thesis is the study of the structure-mesomorphic properties relationship for metallomesogens containing one or more ferrocenes. We tried to use the ferrocene as an electro-active moiety for the development of chemically and electrochemically switchable materials. The synthesis and the mesomorphism's study of tetracatenar bisferrocenes is presented in Chapter I (Figure 1). The...
