A homologous series of liquid crystal bearing with heterocyclic thiophene Schiff base ester with alkanoyloxy chain CH3CH2nCOO–, where , 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16 was successfully synthesized through the modification of some reported methods. The structural information of these compounds was isolated and characterized through some spectroscopic techniques, such as FTIR,

H, and

C NMR and elemental analysis. Textural observation was carried out using a polarizing optical microscope POM over heating and cooling cycles. It was found that all synthesized compounds 3a–g exhibited an enantiotropic nematic phase upon the heating and cooling cycle with high thermal stability. Moreover, a characteristic bar transition texture was observed for compounds 3f and 3g which have shown transition of nematic-to-smectic C phase. This has been further confirmed by obtaining relative phase transition temperature using the differential scanning calorimetry DSC.
