Abstract

A chirally ionic liquid crystal (ICLC) was prepared by the complexation of L(+)-tartaric acid and an achiral mesogenic group (NLC) with an amine unit, and its liquid crystalline behavior was examined by DSC, polarizing microscopy, and X-ray techniques. Ionic ICLC formed smectic A and chiral smectic C* phases. Due to an ionic aggregation, ionic ICLC exhibited a higher mesomorphic-isotropic phase transition temperature when compared to nonionic NLC.
