Investigation of the complete miscibility of disc-rod mesogens in the nematic phase
The synthesis and the phase behaviour of nematic dimers, built up from rod and disc shaped mesogens, separated by extended spacers is described. Miscibility studies with the rod as well as disc shaped mesogens were performed and OPM data of contact samples and the results of detailed DSC experiments of mixtures are presented. Full miscibility in the nematic phase was observed.
