Abstract [en]

Liquid-crystalline materials containing fullerenes are valuable in the development of supramolecular switches and in solar cell technology. In this study, we characterize the liquid-crystalline and dynamic properties of fullerene-containing thermotropic compounds using solid-state natural abundance C-13 NMR experiments under stationary and magic angle spinning sample conditions. Chemical shifts spectra were measured in isotropic, liquid-crystalline nematic and smectic A and crystalline phases using one-dimensional 13C experiments, while two-dimensional separated local-field experiments were used to measure the H-1-C-13 dipolar couplings in mesophases. Chemical shift and dipolar coupling parameters were used to characterize the structure and dynamics of the liquid-crystalline dyads. NMR data of fullerene-containing thermotropic liquid crystals are compared to that of basic mesogenic unit and mesomorphic promoter compounds. Our NMR results suggest that the fullerene-ferrocene dyads form highly dynamic liquid-crystalline phases in which molecules rotate fast around the symmetry axis on the characteristic NMR time scale of similar to 10(-1) s.
