Since their discovery in 1888, liquid crystals have developed from a mere curiosity to a highly interdisciplinary research field. Liquid crystals are most widely used in electronic displays with further applications coming on to the market. One of the major issues in liquid crystal research is still the poor knowledge of structure-property relationships and thus the synthesis of whole series of structurally related compounds is required to design molecules with suitable physical properties. This Thematic Series addresses the synthetic challenges of liquid crystal research, as well as interdisciplinary aspects from material science, physics, physical and theoretical chemistry.
