Abstract: Two series of diesters with bend-rod shapes were synthesized and their thermal properties characterized by POM and DSC. The central group conformational mobility and polarity as well as the length of the mesogenic groups were varied in order to correlate these parameters with mesophase stability. Results indicate that series II diesters are enantiotropic and that their mesophase sensitivity to central group structural changes is limited.
