Abstract: As part of a series of papers, the influence of carbohydrate headgroups and aliphatic chains on the mesogenic properties of glycolipids was investigated. Alkyl glycosides with different types of aliphatic chains were synthesised. Neutral glycolipids were oxidized to their uronic acid derivatives, using the well established TEMPO-oxidation. For comparison a 6-deoxy-6-amino alkylglucopyranoside was synthesised. In addition, the thermotropic and lyotropic phase behaviour of the synthesised compounds were investig…
