Other studies showed that alkyl chains with certain structures allowed the formation of "thermotropic" liquid crystalline materials - which have properties between those of hard solids and soft liquids - as well as the formation of materials that were "isotropic" liquids at room temperature and from which photoconducting
liquid crystals or gels could be formed.
