Supermolecular liquid crystal dendrimers based on the octasilsesquioxane core

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Liquid crystalline dendrimers are proving to be a fascinating class of materials that possess unusual physical properties. The self-assembling process involved in the formation of the mesomorphic state apparently deforms the spherical disposition of the supermolecular dendrimers to give rod-like entities that pack together to yield disordered Smectic A and smectic C mesophases.
