Straight-chain alkanediol derivatives leading to glassy cholesteric liquid crystals with visible reflection
Straight-chain alkanediols such as ethylene glycol are commonly found in our daily life as they are used to produce cosmetics, antifreezes, polyesters and polyurethanes. In this article, we report on the promising potential use of straight-chain alkanediols for rewritable full-colour imaging applications by the preparation of glassy cholesteric liquid crystals (G-CLCs). A series of straight-chain alkanediol derivatives possessing two cholesteryl groups through carbonate ester linkages (Cn-DiCh)doi:10.6084/m9.figshare.12238112.v2 fatcat:v24femkakrhf5ktwmie62yeya4
