Abstract

The helical pitch of a chiral nematic (cholesteric: Ch) liquid crystal (LC) became shorter if an achiral compound 1 was added to a chiral host. This unusual behavior characteristic to ester compounds can be explained by the ability of the ester compound 1 to form non-planar conformations.
