Abstract

Liquid crystals (LCs) containing a trifluoromethylamino group are prepared by the cross-coupling reaction of p-bromo-substituted- (hetero)aryl(trifluoromethyl)amines that are derived from the corresponding dithiocarbamates through oxidative desulfurization-fluorination. The novel LCs are shown to exhibit mainly a smectic phase over a wide range of temperatures. Their electro-optical properties as a component of nematic LCs are compared with those of the corresponding methylamines.
