A liquid crystal (LC) phase with P213 symmetry, the lowest so far in a cubic LC, was obtained in a system of CdS quantum dots (QDs) modified with a two-layer corona of aliphatic thiols (inner) and LC aromatic dendrons (outer). We propose that the unusual low symmetry of this cubic mesophase is a result of the multi-layered corona, which prefers to adopt an anisotropic radial profile because of the combination of long and short “bristles.” The anisotropic distribution of dendrons (long bristles) in the P213 phase is thought to facilitate π-π interaction among the aromatic moieties. The interaction gives rise to non-radiative exciton energy-transfer pathways that induce photoluminescence quenching of the CdS QDs. This is believed to be the first example of structure-dependent emission-quenching behavior.
