Abstract

We propose a survey of some features of those oxadiazole compounds which are mesogenic, that is, which are displaying liquid crystalline properties induced by their rod- or disk-like molecules. We will see that they can have bend-shaped molecules too, creating biaxial phases, and other interesting peculiarities in the nematic and smectic phases. With large electric dipoles and luminescent properties, these materials are also very appealing for technological applications.
