Effect of the site of hydrogen-bonding on the liquid crystalline behaviour of supramolecular complexes

X. Y. Xu, B. Y. Zhang, L. X. Wang and W. M. Gu    

Abstract: Two series of hydrogen-bonded side-chain liquid crystal polymers have been prepared by mixing components containing carboxyl acid and pyridyl-based fragments. We have focused our attention on the effect that the position of the hydrogen bond donor or acceptor site attached to the side-chain backbone has on the hydrogen-bonding interactions and liquid crystalline phase transitions of the system. The liquid crystalline behaviour of the complexes is studied using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, differential scanning calorimetry, polarising optical microscopy and X-ray diffraction. The results indicate that the phase transition temperatures of the complexes are influenced by the site of hydrogen-bonding.
