On the Thermal Behaviour of Some Alkali Branched Alkanoates. Note I

Abstract

Lithium, sodium and potassium isobutyrates, isovalerates and i.socaproates were submitted to a differential scanning calorimetric investigation in the temperature range between 320 K and the isotropic melt region. The collected phase transition temperatures and heat effects are compared to those of the corresponding linear isomers. In particular the occurrence of mesomorphic liquids and the width of their existence fields is discussed.
