Abstract Various anisotropic quaternary ammonium salts characterized by a specific interaction with the interface and capable to form various orientational structures of liquid crystal layer, have been prepared. It has been shown that these salts are promising materials for creation of advanced LC compositions with surface anchoring caused by ionic surfactants. The obtained results are of undoubted interest for the developers of new liquid crystal materials and electro-optical devices based on them.
