Molecules containing the 2-phenylindazole core present liquid crystalline properties even if the two terminal chains do not point along the same axis. C-13 NMR in the liquid crystalline phase shows that the molecular long axis is nearly aligned with the para-axis of the phenyl moiety of the 2-phenylindazole core. This implies that the first fragments of the chain belonging to the indazole moiety do not lie along the molecular long axis. To promote liquid crystal properties, this chain needs to possess at least six carbon atoms.
