Exploration into the development and synthesis of ionic polymeric liquid crystal devices for potential use in touch screens and smart windows considered the potential of amine-based functional groups for tunable polymerisations and bulk compound properties. Through consideration of the nature of the functional group as well as the motif, it would be possible to control the polymerisation rate, as well as thermal and potentially conductive properties of the compounds used in the ultimate device. In this study, three different functional groups, as well as three different motifs were considered across a small range of spacer chain lengths, which also allowed an investigation into a possible odd/even effect on liquid crystal properties.
