 Title    Dynamics of Liquid Crystals by Means of 2 H-NMR: a Comparison between 4,4'-bis(hexyloxy)azoxybenzene and the Derivative Pd(II) Complex AZPAC  
 Abstract    In the present work we report a molecular dynamics investigation of the two mesogens 4,4'-bis(hexyloxy)azoxybenzene (HL) and its Pd(II) acetylacetonate derivative Azpac in their nematic phases. Deuterium Zeeman and quadrupolar spin-lattice relaxation times have been measured at 46.04 MHz on two isotopomers of Azpac (Azpac-d 4 and Azpac-c/ 26 > deuteriated on the aromatic core and on the alkoxy chains, respectively) and on HL-d 4 , an isotopomer of HL partially deuteri-ated on the aromatic core, by means of the Wimperis pulse sequence. The spectral densities obtained from the measured relaxation times are discussed in terms of internal and overall molecular motions. A small step rotational diffusion model for the overall molecular motions, superimposed on a free rotational model for internal motions, allowed diffusion coefficients for molecular spinning and tumbling and for phenyl ring rotations to be derived for HL; the same models were used in describing the dynamics of Azpac.

 Title    Study of the Molecular Dynamics from Deuterium Zeeman and Quadrupolar NMR Relaxation of 4,4'-di-n-Heptylazoxybenzene in the Nematic and Smectic A Phases  
 Abstract    The deuterium spin-lattice (T1Z) and quadrupolar (r iQ) relaxation times of the liquid crystal 4,4'-Heptyl-azoxybenzene (HAB), deuterated on the aromatic rings and the first methylene group of the chains, have been measured by means of the Jeener-Broekaert pulse sequence at two different frequencies (10 and 46.04 M Hz) and throughout the nematic and the smectic A phase. By applying suitable models, we have determined rotational and reorientational diffusion coefficients and evalu­ ated the contribution of the different m otions (internal, molecular and collective) to the relaxation. In particular we have found a non negligible contribution from order director fluctuations. A comparison between the Tlz and Ti Q measurements performed by means of Jeener-Broekaert and Wimperis pulse sequences is also shown.
