Görtz, V. and Goodby, J.W. (2005) Enantioselective segregation in achiral nematic liquid crystals. Chemical Communications, 26. pp. 3262-3264. ISSN 1359-7345
The elusive biaxial nematic liquid crystal phase was recently discovered in a family of substituted oxadiazoles. Our investigations of these materials show that the achiral biaxial nematic phase can segregate into chiral domains of opposite handedness, thereby demonstrating that the liquid-like nematic phase exhibits the properties of a conglomerate.
