Features of 2-methyl-1,4-phenylene bis(4-(3-(acryloyloxy)propoxy)benzoate)

The column phase is dominated by RM257 liquid crystal monomers, which contain the following characteristics:

the molecule has a 4:1 length ratio and is a stick structure.

the molecular ends consist of polar or polarizable groups to keep the molecules in a well-ordered orientation.

The molecule’s long axis is easy to bend and has some stiffness.
