A series of cholesteryl p-perfluoroalkylphenyl carbonate (CPC) [C27H45OCO2C6H4(CF2)nF, n=1,4,6,8] liquid crystals was synthesized and their phase transition behaviours were studied. The results show that the compounds containing a not too long perfluoroalkyl chain (n=6,8) have monotropic chiral smectic C phases.
