dc.description.abstractThe synthesis and mesophase characterization of a homologous series of five-ring bent-core compounds derived from 5-methoxyisophthalic acid are described. Most of the compounds exhibit a polar antiferroelectric smectic C phase. Replacement of the terminal n-alkoxy chains by n-alkyl carboxylate groups, not only destabilizes the formation of mesophases but induces a calamitic mesophase. However, extension of the arms of the bent-core molecule by a phenyl moiety stabilizes the switchable phase. The mesophases were investigated using a combination of polarizing optical microscopy, differential scanning calorimetry, X-ray diffraction and electro-optical methods.en
