Liquid Crystalline Hydroquinone Bis-[trans-4-n-Alkylcyclohexane]-carboxylatesThe synthesis of methyl-, ethyl-, chloro-, bromo-, cyano- and methoxy-substituted esters of hydroquinone 1-7 and their mesomorphic properties are described. The title substances exhibit a large range of mesophases and clearing points about 40-50°C higher than that of the analogous esters of benzoi cacids. 4-Benzoyloxyphenyl trans-4-n-alkylcyclohexanecarboxylates 8-11 show nematic properties.
