Abstract

Despite the relationship between molecular structure and the occurrence of the twist-bend nematic phase being partially understood, very little is known about how these relationships are manifested for ether-linked bimesogens. In this article, we report several novel ether-linked bimesogens that exhibit the NTB phase and explore how the thermal properties of these materials are largely governed by the angle between the two aromatic, carbocyclic or rigid cyclic units.
