Paper Abstract

Two homologous series of enaminoketone mesogens terminated with F3C/OCnH2n+1 (perfluoromethyl series) and F3CO/OCnH2n+1 groups (perfluoromethoxyl series) were synthesized and examined by optical and DSC methods. For the perfluoromethyl series, Sm-A and Cry-B smectic phases were observed and additional tilted phases appeared for short homologues (n < 7). For the perfluoromethoxyl series, the phase sequence of Sm-A, Cry-B and tilted smectic phases exist even for long examined homoglogues (to n equals 18). The occurrence of inverted phase sequence Cry-G - Sm-F - Cry- B and the presence of new orthogonal biaxial phase has also been observed for the last series.
