Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Chiral discotic liquid crystalline polymers are of interest because of their similarity to helical polymers, and for a comparison with chiral rod‐shaped liquid crystals. They are now accessible in several forms, e.g. by doping achiral donor polymers with chiral acceptors (see Figure). The chirality of the discotic phases was investigated CD‐spectroscopically on thin films. (Figure Presented.)
