- A novel sulfur-based platelet derivative was synthesized by reacting elemental sulfur with oleyl amine. The sulfur–oleyl amine (S–OA) derivative has an ionic salt form, layered morphology and forms a highly lamellar structure. Polarized optical microscopy (POM) clearly shows the birefringent lyotropic liquid crystalline behavior of the S–OA platelets dispersions.
