Nano-molecular self assembly and thermal stability of inducedmesomorphismin a ternary mixture of liquid crystallinematerialsAuthor(s): T.N.Govindaiah
In the present work, our investigation is carried out to study on the optical, thermal and chemical properties of multi-component system of Mefenamic acid (MA), Ethanol+Poly Ethylene Glycol (E+PEG). Mixtures of these molecules exhibit a Smectic-A, Smectic-C, Smectic-E and Smectic- B phases sequentially when the specimen cooled from its isotropic phase. These phases have been characterized by using microscopic technique. The temperature variations of optical anisotropy and X-ray studies have been discussed.
