 Title    Nematic Potential and Order Parameter Determined from Dielectric Measurements  
 Abstract    The Maier-Saupe theory is employed in order to calculate order parameters S from the nematic po-tential q. It is found that one of the basic assumptions of the Maier-Saupe theory, q ~S, is approximate-ly fulfilled. The relation between q and S is analysed for various state changes. Previously reported find-ings for 7 PCH that q ~S, not fulfilled along isochoric changes, can be explained by taking into account the pressure and temperature dependences of q. The procedure described in this paper allows to treat experimental data for the nematic potential in a unique way, without being affected by inadequacies of experimentally determined order parameters.

 Title    PVT Measurements on 4'-w-Hexyl-Biphenyl-4-Carbonitrile (6CB) and 4 -w-Heptyl-Biphenyl-4-Carbonitrile (7CB) up to 300 MPa  
 Abstract    P, V m , 7" data were established for 4'-n-hexyl-biphenyl-4-carbonitrile (6CB) and 4'-n-heptyl-biphen-yl-4-carbonitrile (7CB) between 300 and 370 K up to 300 MPa, and specific volumes were determined for the liquid crystalline, isotropic, and also partly for the crystal phases. Volume and enthalpy chang-es at the phase transitions are also presented. In the case of 6CB, a new crystal phase has been detect-ed, corresponding to a triple point at 338 K and 196 MPa. The p, V m , T data enabled us to separate the entropy change into a volume-dependent part and configurational part. From the molar volumes along the nematic-isotropic phase transition T Nl (p), the molecular field parameter y= 3lnT NI /3ln V NI was deter-mined.

 Title    PVT Measurements on 4'-/i-Octyl-Biphenyl-4-Carbonitrile (8CB) up to 300 MPa  
 Abstract    P, V m , Tdata have been measured for the smectic, nematic and isotropic phases of 4'-n-octyl-biphen-yl-4-carbonitrile (8CB) in the temperature range 300-370 K and pressures up to 300 MPa. At atmos-pheric pressure all phase transitions appear to be of first order due to a discontinuity in the density. The volume change at the smectic A -nematic transition is only a tenth of the volume change at the clear-ing temperature. At moderate pressures below 80 MPa the S A -N transition could be detected as a dis-continuity in the period of oscillation in measurements with a high-pressure vibrating tube densimeter. At higher pressures the discontinuity seems to die away, possibly indicating a change from first order to second order transition. From the volume changes and the slopes of the transition lines we calculate the enthalpy changes at the phase transition. The p, V m , T data enable us to calculate the volume part of the entropy and the molecular field parameter y=9ln 7 N i/3ln V NI .
