Terphenyl ring systems are composed of three phenyl rings attached by single carbon-carbon bonds (Fig. 8.5) [142-146]. The rings of the system are oriented to achieve the least strained staggered conformation, resulting in a ''turn'' of the structural axis (see Chapter 7). The twist and pitch between the units are uniform, so substitutions at the ortho positions of the rings capture nearly the same
