        Description    

          Star-shaped molecules consisting of a 1, 3, 4-oxadiazole core       derivatized with alkoxy-
          substituted phenyl ethynylenes, FD12 (dodecyl) and FD16       (hexadecyl) were synthesized.
          These molecules exhibited enantiotropic columnar mesophases       over a wide temperature
          range, with the liquid crystalline phases exhibiting strong       blue fluorescence. On cooling,
          FD12 transformed into a transparent glass at room temperature       wherein the liquid crystalline
          texture was retained. The glassy film remained stable over a       period of one year and ...
