Journal Article
Benstead, M., Rosser, G. A., Beeby, A., Mehl, G. H., & Boyle, R. W. (2011). Addressing fluorescence and liquid crystal behaviour in multi-mesogenic BODIPY materials. New journal of chemistry = Nouveau journal de chimie, 35(7), 1410-1417. https://doi.org/10.1039/c0nj00990c

Two series of BODIPYs (4,4'-difluoro-3a, 4a-diaza-s-indacene) bearing mesogenic substituents have been synthesised and their fluorescent and self-assembly behaviour has been observed and characterised. In order to induce a strong preference for liqui... Read More about Addressing fluorescence and liquid crystal behaviour in multi-mesogenic BODIPY materials.

Mesogenic BODIPYs: An investigation of the correlation between liquid crystalline behaviour and fluorescence intensity (2011)
Journal Article

Photochemical & photobiological sciences : an international journal, 10(6), 992-999. https://doi.org/10.1039/c0pp00388c

A series of mesogenic molecules based on the 4,4¢-di?uoro-3a,4a-diaza-s-indacene (BODIPY) ?uorophore have been synthesised and characterised. Each compound consists of one mesogenic unit, based on a cyanobiphenyl core, and one ?uorophore, of var...
