Quan Li supervises the Liquid Crystal Institute's facilities
for Organic Synthesis. The facility can provide
that have been previously reported in the literature can be requested
by any interested researcher. A fee will be charged to cover
the cost of synthesis. Researchers can also discuss with Dr.
Li, the possible design and synthesis of new materials through
a collaborative research project. The facility can also purify
impure single liquid crystals for a fee and can formulate mixtures
when an exact composition is provided.
The Organic Synthesis Facility is well known for providing high
quality liquid crystalline materials in useable quantites. We have
expertise in deuterated materials, esters, cyanobiphenyls, ferroelectrics,
diacetylenes, lipid salts, etc.
Interest in obtaining a small molecule liquid crystalline material
that is not commercially available should be directed to:
