Paper Abstract

Six new calamitic liquid crystals incorporating 1,12- dicarbadodecahydro-closo-decaborane into the core have been synthesized. All materials exhibit nematic phases and two compounds are also smectic. Comparison with known analogues demonstrates that p-carborane can be an effective constituent of mesogens and also suggests that it suppresses smectic phase formation.
