The Mesogenic 6-Alkoxy-2-(2-(4-Pyridyl)Ethenyl)Naphthalene Homologs
Enantiotropic smectic B phases were observed for the homologues of 6-alkoxy-2-(2-(4-pyridyl)ethenyl) naphthalene. Chiral nematic and chiral smectic C phases were observed for mixtures with terephthalic acid mono-(2-methylbutyl) ester as chiral proton donor. These behaviors were similar to that of 4-alkoxy-4’-stilbazole.
