The access to self-diffusion coefficients in anisotropic systems such as thermotropic liquid crystals by means of PFG NMR is complicated by strong dipolar interactions. Additionally, problems arise due to the immediate orientation of low-molar-mass nematic liquid crystals in an external field. The director orientation can be changed by the application of an… CONTINUE READING
