Abstract

The synthesis and characterisation of higher homologues of the well-known benzylidene anilines, viz. N-(p-n-tridecyloxy, tetradecyloxy, and hexadecyloxy benzylidene)-p-n-alkylanilines, 13O.m, 14O.m and 16O.m liquid crystalline compounds have exhibited mono, bi and tri phase variant smectic polymorphism. The different liquid crystalline phases are characterized by an optical polarising microscope equipped with a PC based temperature controller. The phase transitions are studied by using differential scanning calorimetry. The results are discussed in the light of the data available on other nO.m compounds
