The size of the mesogen causes the phase transitions to occur at relatively high temperatures, which is usually a disadvantage; but it is beneficial for the curing process--which also takes place at elevated temperatures--because it facilitates carrying out of the process in the liquid crystalline state.
Also included its brands are licrivue for mesogen mixture for three-dimensional film-patterned retarders, isiphor for energy-efficient, high-quality phosphor for liquid crystal display backlighting and livilux for the latest small molecules for evaporation process on glass or flexible substrates.
An LCER based on the ketone mesogen was successfully synthesized and its structure was confirmed by FTIR.

The first 11 chapters fall under the heading: "Densely Cross-Linked Systems." The final eight chapters are grouped under the heading: "Weakly Cross-Linked Systems: Liquid Crystal Elastomers." Sample chapter topics include responsive reactive mesogen microstructures and electromechanical effects in swollen nematic elastomers.
Japanese fuel cell developer Toto will supply miniature tubular solid oxide fuel cells to MD for the development of its new MesoGen Orion portable fuel cell generator.
The term mesogen was proposed for directly developing asteroids to refer to the developmental stages that occur between the end of the gastrula stage and the beginning of the juvenile stage (McEdward and Janies, 1993).
Ester and ether bonds are common linkages between the mesogen and head/tail in the LC structure [25].
This is particularly the case for the polar cyano mesogen in Figure 1 where liquid crystal phases appear in the elastomer that did not exist before cross-linking [10].
