Abstract

Complementary diaminopyridine-flavin dyads that provide liquid crystalline systems have been synthesised. The mesophases possess well-defined molecular architectures, thermal stability and wide ranges. Furthermore, chiral centres have been introduced to explore the role chirality plays on the end morphology. The introduction of stereo-centres into these systems offers effective control over mesophase morphology and generates well-defined columnar liquid crystals.
