Kinetically induced intermolecular association: unusual enthalpy changes in the nematic phase of a novel dimeric liquid-crystalline molecule

Author affiliations

Abstract

A novel dimeric liquid-crystalline molecule in which two mesogenic groups are connected via catechol was found to have smectic-like layer ordering in the nematic phase, and unusual enthalpy changes were observed in the nematic phase on heating from the monotropic smectic C phase.
