We synthesised a rod like shaped new chiral inducer to construct chiral liquid crystal electrolyte solution. Next, electrochemical polymerisation was carried out in the chiral liquid crystal electrolyte solution. The surface morphology of the polymers were observed with polarising optical microscopy. Synthesis of the new chiral inducer and preparation of semi-conducting thin film in the cholesteric liquid crystal electrolyte solution were performed.
