A structural model of the chiral “Im3m” cubic phase

Abstract

Assuming the twisted arrangement of rodlike molecules as the origin of the chirality as in the existing model, a new model of the molecular arrangement in the cubic “Im3m” phase is proposed. The adoption of a basic structure different from that assumed in the existing model resolves most difficulties of the model including the random placement of defects concerning the sense of twist.
