Abstract

The synthesis and liquid crystalline properties of some new 2,6-disubstituted anthracenes are described. Symmetrical alkylphenyl derivatives exhibit smectic mesophases, whereas simpler structures are non-mesogenic. One unsymmetrically substituted anthracene exhibits a narrow nematic phase. The potential for these molecules to act as phototriggers has been investigated but efficient photodimerisation cannot be achieved.
