Liquid crystals carrying stereodefined vicinal difluoro- and trifluoro-alkyl motifs

Author(s): M. Nicoletti, M. Bremer, P. Kirsch, D. O'Hagan

The synthesis of the stereospecifically fluorinated difluoro- and trifluoro-rac-3 and rac-4 is described where the fluorine atoms are positioned adjacent/vicinal to each other and the physical characteristics of these candidate liquid crystals including negative dielectric anisotropy are measured and rationalised.
