RM105 LCD chemical can be polymerized to generate a liquid crystal polymer (LCP) on its own or a liquid crystal elastomer (LCE) when polymerized in tandem with other reactive mesogens or moieties that serve to lightly cross-link the material. This molecule is devoid of particularly labile functional groups.
The basic information of RM105
RM105 CAS NO. 82200-53-1

Molecular Formula: C23H26O6
RM105 is an LCD monomer that also functions as monoacrylate reactive mesogen, RM material, and electronic chemical.
What are the applications of RM105?
Polymer-stabilized liquid crystal (PSLC) devices have been widely used as smart windows and optical shutters and they can realize fast switching between transparent and scattering states. It has several advantages, including a high transmittance, a high haze value, a quick response time, and a low driving voltage.
The electro-optical response of PSLC devices is influenced by the characteristics of liquid crystal molecules as well as the influence of the polymer network on their motion. The effect of polymer network morphology on the performance of PSLC devices is investigated systematically by researchers. After photopolymerization, the polymer network became softer and sparser with the addition of mono-acrylate monomers to the liquid crystal di-acrylate monomers.
Negative LC mixture, photopolymerizable LC monomer, and photoinitiator are among the ingredients utilized to make PSLC devices. The di-acrylate reactive mesogen RM82 (CAS NO.125248-71-7) and a mono-acrylate reactive mesogen RM105 were used in this investigation as photopolymerizable monomers.
Using radially aligned LC support, researchers demonstrated the synthesis of recyclable polymer beads for Cu2+ sensing. Polymers derived from rhodamine B and sensing probe monomers were produced to detect metal ions in water. LC monomers RM257 (CAS NO. 174063-87-7) and RM105, a nonreactive mesogen of 5CB (CAS NO. 40817-08-1), and a synthesized rhodamine B-derived monomer were used to make recyclable polymeric LC beads. These are stable and selective LC beads for sensing.
The selective sensing of Cu2+ via the synthesized rhodamine derivative was validated by the UV–vis analysis. Depending on the different pore densities induced by varying quantities of 5CB, different detection rates of the beads were found. Each LC probe bead manufactured could be recycled at least eight times. The manufactured LC beads will be excellent for engineering and environmental applications due to their high sensitivity to copper ions in an aqueous solution.
Adaptive structural colors, which result from periodic changes in refractive indices, are abundant in nature and serve a variety of functions. Researchers have been working on developing adaptive full structural colors and camouflage in polymers for years. Such responsive photonic materials could be of interest in smart coatings for house decors and automobiles, adaptive and camouflage textiles, and anticounterfeiting.
These full-color photonic materials are made up of block copolymers, cholesteric liquid crystals (CLC), or colloidal crystals, and they can be patterned by altering their responsive qualities locally chemically. Even though inkjet printing technology allows for the creation of intricate and diverse patterns, full-color camouflage in photonic-colored polymers remains a challenge. CLC or chiral nematic polymers are one-dimensional photonic materials that have piqued interest due to their ease of fabrication into responsive materials.
Due to the presence of the helical molecular organization, CLC polymers selectively reflect only one-handed circularly polarized light, with the wavelength of light reflected being precisely proportional to the length of the helical pitch. With a single aqueous Calcium nitrate solution as the ink, researchers have created a printable blue-colored CLC polymer coating that can be printed in full colors covering the visible spectrum from 480 to 640 nm. Here, a monomer mixture comprising diacrylate (RM257) and monoacrylate (RM105) mesogens was used to make the printable CLC polymer coating.
