The search for liquid crystals (LCs) displaying novel and specific properties is a crucial point for the development of new technologies. Electroactive or photoactive LCs are of high interest because of the possibility to tune the mesomorphic and physical properties. Combination of an electron acceptor subunit (fullerene) and an electron donor subunit (ferrocene) within the same molecular framework could allow to design new switchable materials.
