Abstract

A palladium(II)-based metallomesogen with azobenzene was synthesized for the fabrication of an optically and electrically tunable polarized light modulator. Owing to the extended molecular geometry constructed by organometallic chemistry, the photo-responsive metallomesogen showed an excellent orientation in liquid crystal media.
