The birefringence of MBBA, determined from the channeled spectra, decreases when the wavelength increases, showing a normal dispersion. The changes induced by an external electrostatic field acting perpendicular on the nematic director in the birefringence values were evidenced. The birefringence

The apparent shear viscosity of p-methoxybenzylidene-p'-n-butylaniline in the presence of electrohydrodynamic convection (EHC) is investigated experimentally. In the absence of an electric field, directors are almost aligned along the flow direction such that the viscosity is close to the minimum

Direct dipolar spin couplings are informative and sensitive probes for a wide range of dynamic processes and structural properties at atomic, molecular and supramolecular levels in liquid crystals and other anisotropic materials. Usually, heteronuclear 13C-1H dipolar couplings in liquid crystals
The resonance Raman (RR) spectra of chlorophyll (Chl) a, Chl b and pheophytin a dissolved in a liquid-crystalline MBBA + EBBA mixture were measured. The RR frequencies of chlorophylls in the liquid crystal (LC) are compared with those of solutions

Rapidly expanding research on nonsoluble and noncrystalline chemical and biological materials necessitates sophisticated techniques to image these materials at atomic-level resolution. Although their study poses a formidable challenge, solid-state NMR is a powerful tool that has demonstrated application to the

Conformational characteristics of 1-butanol incorporated not only in hexagonal and lamellar aggregates formed by a lyotropic liquid crystal composed of sodium octanoate, 1-butanol, and water but also in a thermotropic liquid crystal, 4'-methoxybenzylidene-4-n-butylaniline (MBBA), have been investigated from 2H NMR

We report the orientational behavior of nematic phases of 4-cyano-4'-pentylbiphenyl (5CB) on cationic, anionic, and nonionic surfaces before and after contact of these surfaces with solutions containing the negatively charged vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV). The surfaces were prepared on evaporated
