Chemistry and Pharmacology
The synthesis of racemic and enantiomerical enriched axial chiral liquid crystalline compounds incorporating a trisubstituted allene unit is described. All compounds 16-28 display the smectic C-phase and mostly also a nematic mesophase. All investigated enantiomerically enriched compounds have a ferroelectrically switchable chiral smectic SC*-phase.
