TRANS,TRANS-4-PROPENYL-4''-PROPYL-BICYCLOHEXYL Liquid crystals have properties between those of conventional liquid and those of solid crystal. For instance, a liquid crystal shows fluidity like a liquid, but it also demonstrates optical anisotropy like a crystal. Liquid crystal molecules are directionally oriented, but positionally not oriented. Small molecule-based and polymer-based liquid crystals are known. The structure of a liquid crystal involves rigid π-electron systems bearing flexible long alkyl chains. Many liquid crystal molecules are calamitic shaped with a group for polarization, but planar molecules are also known. We can control the temperature which shows a liquid crystal phase by modifying the length of alkyl chain. A practical liquid crystal has a mesophase around room temperature. In addition to an application for a liquid crystal display, liquid crystal materials are expected to be organic semiconductors. A semiconductor having a liquid crystal phase, the so-called liquid crystal semiconductor, spontaneously undergoes a molecular orientation and self-assembly.
