Featured Liquid Crystal Picture Art of the Month
Achiral unsymmetrical three-ring bent-shaped liquid crystals comprising amide and imine linkages with transverse substituent of chloro moiety on the central phenyl ring in the core, exhibiting polar banana phases. The nucleation of this banana leaf is observed during cooling the sample @ 0.5 degree/min. Upon close observation one can easily identify the undulation in the leaf indicated by different color intensity region. Picture width is 1000 microns.
This picture, even if it is yellowish, shows one of the nicest “banana leaf” I have ever seen.
