Kitney, S. P., Billa, M. R., Kassireddy, K., Haro, M., Al-Kalifah, M. S., Kelly, S. M., …Kelly, S. (2011). Liquid crystalline organic semiconductors: nematic spiro[cyclopentyl-1,9']fluorenes. Liquid crystals, 38(7), (813-829). doi:10.1080/02678292.2011.577913. ISSN 0267-8292

A number of nematic spiro[cyclopentyl-1,9′]fluorene reactive mesogens with polymerisable oxetane or non-conjugated diene end-groups have been successfully synthesised. The melting and clearing points of these new spiro[cyclopentyl-1,9′]fluorenes are... Read More

Journal Article
Bao, W., Billa, M. R., Kassireddy, K., Haro, M., Kelly, M. J., Kitney, S. P., …Kelly, S. M. (2010). Carbazole nematic liquid crystals. Liquid crystals, 37(10), (1289-1303). doi:10.1080/02678292.2010.504862. ISSN 0267-8292

A number of calamitic 2,7-diary-N-alkyl-substituted carbazoles with an enantiotropic nematic phase have been prepared. Branching of the aliphatic chain attached to the nitrogen atom in the carbazole ring leads to significantly lower liquid crystal tr... Read More
