Date, R.W. and Bruce, D.W. (2003) Shape amphiphiles: mixing rods and disks in liquid crystals. Journal of the American Chemical Society, 125 (30). pp. 9012-9013. ISSN 0002-7863
Mixtures of rodlike and disklike liquid crystals suffer from phase separation. However, such mixtures can be homogenized if a molecule is added which comprises a rod- and a disklike fragment linked together covalently. We have termed such a molecule a shape amphiphile and believe that this represents a new class of amphiphilicity.
