Abstract

A light-emitting liquid crystal containing p-terphenyl and a pentylsilyl group was synthesized, and its thermodynamic and photochemical properties were studied. The pentylsilyl group was found to work as a flexible side chain of a thermotropic liquid crystal. This compound shows intense blue fluorescence in hexane and in the liquid crystal state.
