Abstract

Thermotropic discotic and smectic liquid crystallinity can be induced for folic acid derivatives having octadecyl and undecyl substituents in wide temperatures ranges, respectively; the addition of sodium triflate to smectic liquid-crystalline folic acid leads to a change of the assembled structures from smectic to columnar phases.
