Abstract

The synthesis and characterization of the nitrile ligands 3,4,5-tridodecyloxy benzonitrile (7) and 3,4,5-trioctadecyloxy bezonitrile (8), and their corresponding palladium(II) complexes are described. The nitrile ligands display only a crystalline phase and do not show liquid crystalline behavior, while their corresponding palladium(II) complexes display an enantiotropic columnar mesophase. The induction of the columnar mesophase is mainly due to dimerization through the palladium complexation of the half disk-like nitrile ligands giving rise to a trans square planar geometry.
