      The oxazole and indole based heterocyclic photochromic fulgides were synthesized from their corresponding fulgenic acid derivatives by clay catalysed microwave irradiation methodology. Improved yields of fulgides were observed by the microwave irradiation method as compared other chemical methods employed so far. The proportions of clay (montmorillonite KSF) and isopropenyl acetate play a key role in increasing the yields of fulgides.

      Liquid crystalline pendant polymeric complexes have been obtained by supramolecular assembly of two mesogenic components namely, poly[4-(10-acryloyloxydecyloxy)-4'- phenylazobenzonitrile] (P10) and 4-alkyloxybenzoic acids (A7-A12). Hydrogen bond formed between carboxylic acid and cyano moiety served as molecular bridge. The polymeric complexes acquitted as undivided liquid crystalline properties exhibited stable and enantiotropic mesophases. The precursor, monomer and polymer were analysed by 1H-NMR and 13C-NMR spectroscopy. The hydrogen bonding interaction in polymer complexes (P10-A7 to P10-A12) was investigated by FT-IR spectroscopy. The thermal behaviours and textural analysis were studied by differential scanning calorimetry and polarized optical microscopy respectively.

    • Bent Shaped 1,3,4-Oxadiazole/Thiadiazole heterocyclic rings containing liquid crystals

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Two series of bent shaped 1,3,4-oxadiazole/thiadiazole heterocyclic ring containing liquid crystalline (LC) compounds were synthesized and characterized by FT-IR, $^{1}_{}$H, $^{13}_{}$C-NMR and ESI-Mass spectro-scopic techniques. Liquid crystal properties were investigated by polarized optical microscopy and differential scanning calorimetry. All the compounds exhibited mesophases such as nematic, smectic A and smectic C phases. The liquid crystalline effects were ascertained by changing the central atom in the heterocyclic ring and by increasing the length of the terminal alkyloxy chains which bring considerable improvements on the mesomorphic properties. The absorption and emission spectral studies of all the compounds were investigated and confirmed.
