Abstract

Supramolecular ferroelectric liquid crystalline complexes have been obtained from 4-alkoxybenzoic acids and optically active trans-4-substituted-4'-stilbazoles. Chiral smectic C phases are induced by the formation of supramolecular mesogenic structure through the selective intermolecular hydrogen bond between the achiral benzoic acids and the chiral non-mesogenic stilbazoles.
