The solid-state assisted synthesis opens an easy access to oligobenzoates end-capped with gallic acid, protocatechuic acid or 4-hydroxybenzoic acid etherified with long flexible chains – which are important precursors for liquid crystalline materials. The latter may consist of aliphatic, oligoethyleneoxy and semiperfluorinated chains. The rapid preparation of oligoesters with different peripheries is demonstrated.
