Abstract

Aim: We wish to expand our knowledge about these molecules with a banana-shape, in order to obtain chemically stable materials with "new" types of phases and orderings, preferably at room temperature, and investigate their potential applications in switchable cells. Structure- property relations will contribute to better understanding of this state of matter and the factors that determine the formation of fast switchable phases, like the B2 phase
