Donnio, B., Heinrich, B., Allouchi, H., Kain, J., Diele, S., Guillon, D. and Bruce, D.W. (2004) A generalized model for the molecular arrangement in the columnar mesophases of polycatenar mesogens. Crystal and molecular structure of two hexacatenar mesogens. Journal of the American Chemical Society, 126 (46). pp. 15258-15268. ISSN 0002-7863
The columnar mesophases of two series of hexacatenar palladium(II) mesogens have been studied in detail by a combination of X-ray diffraction on aligned and unaligned samples and dilatometry. The results of these studies, combined with the results of two single crystal structure determinations, have allowed a model of the molecular arrangement in the columnar phases to be proposed. This model differs in detail from that generally accepted for the arrangement of polycatenar mesogens in columnar phases, and a new model is proposed which accounts for both new and existing data.
