Seed, A. J., Toyne, K. J., Hird, M., & Goodby, J. W. (2012). Synthesis and mesomorphic behaviour of high polarisability materials for non-linear optical applications. Liquid crystals, 39(4), (403-414). doi:10.1080/02678292.2012.658090. ISSN 0267-8292

A variety of high polarisability materials have been synthesised with thioester and alkyne linking groups, and isothiocyanato and cyano terminal groups. The synthesis of these materials is presented and the transition temperatures and optical paramet... Read More
