Paper Abstract

The chiral effects displayed by trioxadecalin derived liquid crystals are summarized. All these mesogenic properties depend strongly on small changes in the molecular structure. It is therefore possible to obtain a wide array of different chiral effects like helix inversions, blue phases, TGBA phase, SC* phase to name only some of them by changing only a small part of the molecule, meanwhile the basic mesogenic core is kept constant. In addition the mesogenic properties of new trioxadecalins are described, that have been obtained by a new synthetic pathway.
