Bhattacharya, S and Krishnan-Ghosh, Y (2002) 2-Halooxyethylene ethers of cholesterol as novel single component, room temperature cholesteric LC materials. In: Molecular Crystals and Liquid Crystals Science and Technology - Section A: Molecular Crystals and Liquid Crystals, 381 (1). pp. 33-41.Full text not available from this repository.
A series of 2-haloethoxyethyl cholesteryl ethers has been synthesized. Each material shows attractive liquid-crystalline properties as revealed by differential scanning calorimetry, polarizing microscopy, and temperature-dependence of selective reflection characteristic of the cholesteric mesophase. These are interesting examples of simple, nonpolymeric, single component systems that show the cholesteric mesophase at room temperature.
