New chiral organic acid 1 and alcohol 2 synthesized from natural lactate and (S)-1-iodo-2- meyhylbutane were used as chiral block for preparing ferroelectric liquid crystals. Six series of chiral liquid crystals were synthesized to study the molecular structure-liquid crystal phase relationship. Different liquid crystal phase sequence K-Sc*-SA-I, K-Sc*-N*-I, or K-N*-I is formed among them. The thermal stability of Sc* phases observed is high. These new FLCs and their mixtures could be useful for practical use. The results also indicate that compounds 1 and 2 could be helpful for preparing new FLCs.
