The ultraviolet, stability of several high birefringence, liquid crystal structural was studied. Compounds containing carbon-carbon double bond or triple bond are less stable than those containing merely phenyl rings, In addition to the structural effect, absorption wavelength also plays an important role to the degradation mechanisms.
