  2. 2.  1888-1899 ◦ 1888, Austrian Botanist Freidrich Reinitzer discovers liquid crystals. 01/15/16 Milky liquid at 145oC Clear liquid at 179 ° C
  3. 3. 01/15/16 Solid Liquid crystal “fourth state of matter” Liquid Gas
  4. 4. 01/15/16 Liquid Crystal – a stable phase of matter characterized by anisotropic properties without the existence of a 3-dimensional crystal lattice – generally lying between the solid and isotropic (“liquid”) phase.
  5. 5. 01/15/16 vs. Anisotropic Liquids and gases (uniform properties in all directions). Liquid Crystals have orientational order
  6. 6.  A fluid phase in which a liquid crystal flows and will take the shape of its container. It differs from liquid that there are still some orientation order possessed by the molecules
  7. 7.  A phase that exists between solid and liquid  Discovered in 19th century when studying a cholesterol derivative
  8. 8.  Assuming that the direction of preferred orientation in a liquid crystal (LC) is ↑, this direction can be represented by an arrow, called the director of the LC.  Each molecule is orientated at some angle to the director.
  9. 9. Typical Representation of a LC Molecule Mesogens Note: these molecules possess very strong dipole moment
  10. 10. The liquid crystal molecules prefer to align parallel to each other because of the strong intermolecular attraction (π-π interaction)
  11. 11. 01/15/16 Nematic, Smectic & Cholesteric Anisotropic substances may go through one or several Liquid Crystal Phases
  12. 12.  Molecules in this phase are long and rod-like in shape. They are free to move in space.
  13. 13.  This phase can be reached at lower temperatures than the nematic phase.  Molecules align themselves in layers. (They are restricted to their plane.)  More order and higher viscosity
  14. 14.  Molecules with intermolecular forces that favor alignment between molecules at a slight angle to one another  The director is not fixed in space as in a nematic phase, it rotates throughout the sample
  15. 15.  If an electric field is applied to a liquid crystal the molecules will align in the same direction as the field.
  16. 16. Criteria for a Molecule being Liquid Crystalline • The molecule must be elongated in shape- length should be significantly greater than its width • Molecule must have some rigidity in its central region • The ends of the molecule are somewhat flexible
  17. 17. A side chain R, two or more aromatic rings A and A’, connected by linkage groups X and Y, and at the other end connected to a terminal group R’. 01/15/16
