Paper Abstract

The photophysical studies of the discogenic title compound in thin films are reported and correlated with its thermal properties. Either the columnar or the crystalline phase is stable at room temperature. The absorption and fluorescence spectra of the columnar mesophase are different depending on the thermal history of the sample and are clearly distinguishable from those of corresponding to crystalline phase allowing the study of phase transitions. Changes observed in absorption and emission spectra during columnar mesophase formation show a rich diversity, what was related to molecular rearrangements from homeotropic to homogenic- like orientation in spectroscopic cell.
