AbstractA new luminescent ionic liquid crystal, called Ipz-2, has been synthesised and its mesophase behaviour and also at the air-liquid interface has been studied and compared with Ipz, another ionic pyrazole derivative, with a similar molecular structure, previously studied. The X-ray diffraction pattern shows that Ipz-2 exhibits hexagonal columnar mesomorphism, while Ipz adopts lamellar mesophases. Langmuir films of both compounds are flat and homogeneous at large areas per molecule, but create different supramolecular structures under further compression. Ipz-2 Langmuir films have been transferred onto solid substrates, and Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) images of the Langmuir-Blodgett films have shown that large columnar structures hundreds of nm in diameter are formed on top of the initial monolayer, in contrast with well-defined trilayer LB films obtained for Ipz. Our results show that Ipz-2 has a tendency to stack in columnar arrangements both in liquid crystalline bulk and in Langmuir and Langmuir-Blodgett films. © 2012 Elsevier Inc.
