Abstract

It is shown for the first time that liquid crystal behavior can be induced through halogen bonding. Thus, mixing the nonmesomorphic components 4-alkoxystilbazole with pentafluoroiodobenzene leads to a 1:1 halogen-bonded complex whose integrity is shown by X-ray single-crystal analysis and which shows thermotropic smectic A and nematic phases.
