A. R Krishna, T. S. Boopathi, and Senthil, S., “Synthesis and Characterization of Heterocyclic Metallomesogen”, Materials Today: Proceedings, vol. 18. pp. 1670-1677, 2019.[Abstract]

The heterocyclic metallomesogen was derived from nickel (II) complexand Schiff base ligand. The target compound and its ligand were characterized by elemental analysis, FTIR, 1HNMR, 13CNMR spectroscopy and UV-Vis spectroscopy. The spectral details were in accordance with the structure. The low value of molar conductance revealed the non-electrolytic nature of metallomesogen. The cyclic voltammetric studies explained the oxidation state of Ni(III) to Ni(II). Polarized microscopic investigation revealed the presence of Nematic and Smectic texture. Further investigation with DSC measurements confirmed the mesophase formation. It was observed that the difference in clearing temperatureand suppression of mesophaseof complex when compared to ligand was due to lack of flexibility in complex

T. S. Boopathi and Senthil, S., “Synthesis and characterization of heterocyclic nonlinear mesogen”, Materials Today: Proceedings, vol. 5. Elsevier Ltd, pp. 16172-16180, 2018.[Abstract]

A series of non linear schiffs base based liquid crystalline compounds differing in their alkyl chain in the terminal position of 1,4-disubstituted triazole core unit were synthesized. All the compounds and their intermediates are in accordance with FTIR, 1HNMR and 13CNMR spectroscopy. The thermal property and mesogenic behavior are characterized by HOPM and DSC studies which show that all the compounds exhibit liquid crystalline properties with nematic texture. The increase in terminal chain length aids the lamellar arrangement favoring smectic phase. © 2017 Elsevier Ltd.

T. S. Boopathi, “Click Reaction Assisted Synthesis of Heterocyclic Liquid Crystals and its Characterization ”, Rasayan J. Chem, vol. 10, pp. 136 - 148, 2017.[Abstract]

The synthesis of 1,4-disubstituted-[1,2,3]-triazoles involving the addition of aryl azide to terminal acetylenes andethyl acetoacetate are employed in the preparation of a series of non-linear mesogens having ester and imine as linking units. The structures of final compounds and their intermediates are characterized by FTIR, 1HNMR and 13CNMR spectroscopy. Optical microscopy and differential scanning calorimetry confirm structural information of liquid crystal phases of mesogens. The final compounds reveal preferentially well-defined threaded nematic phases. In addition, they show weak fluorescence in solution with poor quantum yields and a Stokes shift of around 70 nm.
