Splay and bend elastic constants in the nematic phase of some disulfide bridged dimeric compounds.

Abstract

We report measurements of the temperature dependences of the splay (K11) and bend (K33) elastic constants of several homologues and a binary mixture of disulfide bridged symmetric dimers made of alkoxy cyanobiphenyl monomeric units. All of them have an even number m of carbon and sulfur atoms in the linking chain and expected to have linear conformations… (More)
