Summary of "Unique Supramolecular Liquid Crystal Phases with Different Two-Dimensional Crystal Layers."

We report here a series of tetrablock-mimic azobenzene-containing fullerene dyads that form phase segregated two-dimensional (2D) crystal constructed supramolecular liquid crystals (LCs). The unique double-, triple- and quadruple-layer packing structure of fullerenes in 2D crystals leads to different smectic supramolecular LC phases, and novel LC phase transitions are observed due to the change of fullerene packing layer number in 2D crystals. Interestingly, by combining the LC properties with 2D crystals, these materials show excellent electron mobility in the order of 10^-3 cm^2V^-1s^-1, despite their relatively low fullerene content. Our results provide a novel method to manipulate 2D crystal layer thickness, with promising applications in optoelectronic devices.

Echocardiography amplified by the addition of depth to the conventional two-dimensional ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY visualizing only the length and width of the heart. Three-dimensional ultrasound imaging was first described in 1961 but its application to echocardiography did not take place until 1974. (Mayo Clin Proc 1993;68:221-40)
