Several compounds with high birefringence and having tolane structure were synthesized. For a high polarizability, isothiocyanato (NCS) terminal group was introduced. Another goal of this study was reduction of melting point and smectic phases by introduction of fluorine as lateral substituent. The transition temperatures for all the synthesized compounds and the refractive and dielectric indices for one of the compounds have been determined. Electro-optic (EO) measurements were also performed.
