Conception, synthèse et étude de "tris"-fullérodendrimères et rotaxanes liquides-cristallins

Pieper, Pauline ; Deschenaux, Robert (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2017.

Ce travail de thèse est basé sur l’utilisation de l’auto-assemblage de dendrimères liquides-cristallins pour créer des architectures supramoléculaires complexes contenant des éléments isotropes tels que les [60]fullerène (C60) ou des rotaxanes. Le but a été d’étudier l’influence de l’incorporation de ces éléments isotropes sur la formation et la stabilité des...

The olefin cross-metathesis reaction using the second-generation Grubbs catalyst was employed to prepare non-symmetrical thermotropic liquid crystals from various mesomorphic or nonmesomorphic type I and type II olefinic constructs, including linear, chiral, dendritic and ferrocenyl olefins. Smectic C, smectic A and nematic phases, as well as chiral smectic A and chiral nematic phases were...

Design, Synthesis, and Self-Assembly Behavior of Liquid-Crystalline Bis-[60]Fullerodendrimers

Russo, Virginie ; Pieper, Pauline ; Heinrich, Benoît ; Donnio, Bertrand ; Deschenaux, Robert

In: Chemistry – A European Journal, 2016, vol. 22, no. 48, p. 17366-17376

Bis-[60]fullerodendrimers were synthesized by assembling [60]fullerene-containing type I (terminal olefin) and type II (a,ß-unsaturated carbonyl olefin) olefins through the olefin cross-metathesis reaction. The synthetic modular approach developed in this study allowed the preparation of mono-[60]fullerodendrimers and their [60]fullerene-free analogues. First- and second-generation poly(aryl...
