Abstract

The synthesis and characterization of a series of chiral fluorinated low molar mass organosiloxane materials is presented. The mesogenic moiety is similar to that in the TSiKN65F mesogen reported by Naciri et al., which displays a de Vries-type SA∗ phase. The one parameter varied across the series reported herein is the length of the alkyl chain linking the mesogen moiety to the siloxane tail.
