Investigations of Mixtures of Polar and Nonpolar Compounds with the A(1) Smectic Phase
Binary mixtures composed of 80BCAB with polar nTPCHB and nonpolar nMPCHB as well with nonpolar A-n compounds have been investigated. It is shown that dimerization of 80BCAB compound takes place only in polar matrix. Study of the effect of dilution of the polar matrix nTPCHB with a nonpolar component nMPCHB is shown that generation of smectic A(d) is due to the application a matrix with a long aliphatic chain and not to the lowering of its polarity.
