  • Abstract The primary of this research work was an attempt to elucidate the correlation between structure and property in the chiral smectic liquid crystal. A homologous series of chiral materials derived from (S)-lactic acid has been successfully synthesized and the structures-property relationship investigated in the chiral liquid crystal system. The target compounds were modified independently by (i) the nonchiral peripheral methylene chain length ‘m’, (ii) the chiral tailed ether alkyl chain length ‘n’ and (iii) lateral 2-fluoro substitution in the core.
    Chiral materials of three series I (m=8~12), II (m=8~12), and III (m=8~12), displayed enantiotropic mesophases of the SmA* and SmC* phases. (i)With the increasing nonchiral methylene chain lengths ‘m’, the temperature range of the mesophase decreases. It says that the clearing point decreases and the crystal point increases. (ii) When the chiral tailed ether alkyl chain length ‘n’ increase, the clearing point and crystal point decreases. (iii) The materials with lateral 2-fluoro substitutents in the phenyl ring of core could depress the formation of mesophase, lowering the transition temperature, melting point, clearing point and Ps values.
    The electro-optical response in the series of chiral materials in the SmC* phase displayed typical ferroelectric hysteresis loop or hysteresis-free, V-shaped switching property upon various applied frequencies and temperatures. The maximum Ps values of I(m=8~10), II(m=8~10), III(m=8~10)vary form 19.89~43.93 nC/cm2. The variations of peripheral chain length ‘m’ in the tree series of compounds, have no remarkable effect on switching behavior in the SmC* phase.
    In conclusion, the results indicated that the chiral tailed ether alkyl chain materials derived from (S)-lactic acid with the lateral 2-fluoro substitution in the phenyl ring of core are favorable for the formation of the wide temperature range of the ferroelectric phase. V-shaped switching behaviors appear in the SmC* phase of the chiral materials of the three series. This finding may provide a new way of assessing the nature of the V-shaped switching for display application.
