Abstract: Analogous to rod-shaped and disc-shaped molecules, bent-core molecules also exhibit nematic phases, in addition to other higher order mesophases. Presently, about 600 bent-core or banana-shaped molecules are known to exhibit nematic phases. In this article, the chemistry and mesomorphic properties of all these materials are summarized.
