AbstractThe synthesis of different bent-core molecules derived from 3,49-biphenylene bearing azo, azoxy, imine or ester linkages in their lateral structures is reported. Structure–activity relationships for their liquid crystalline behaviour are discussed. SmCP, USmCP and Colob mesophases are found depending on the type and number of these connecting units. The sequence ester#azoxy . imine . azo can be proposed for the mesophase range, with significant differences observed in terms of mesopahase stabilization. SHG studies on these compounds give nonlinear coefficients in the range of 1–8 pm V21. The molecular origin for these values is analyzed semi- uantitatively. It was concluded that the SHG performance of bent-core mesogens in general can still be increased substantially. An approach to improve the properties of these materials is briefly outlined.
