 Title    Thermodynamic Measurements on the Binary System Bis{[2,2-di(w- hexyloxycarbonyl)ethenyl]phenyl} Biphenyl-4,4'-dicarboxylate and 4-w-Octyloxyphenyl 4-/i-Pentyloxybenzoate at Elevated Pressures  
 Abstract    Thermodynamic measurements have been carried out on the binary system of a swallow-tailed liquid crystal A = bis{[2,2-di(n-hexyloxycarbonyl)ethenyl]phenyl} biphenyl-4,4'-dicarboxylate (4DS6) and B = 4-n-octyloxyphenyl 4-rc-pentyloxybenzoate (5 0 /0 8). A filled smectic A phase is induced in the concentration range 0.11 < xA < 0.75. The maximum of the SmA-N transition temperature (365 K) is observed for xA = 0.33. Dilatometric measurements show that the packing density in the filled phases is increased. High-pressure DTA is employed in order to investigate the coexistence range of the liquid crystalline phases and the slopes of the transition lines. The slopes of the melting curves for the mixtures are significantly smaller than those for the pure components. The slopes for the smectic -nematic -isotropic transitions are considerably larger. The coexistence range for the (smectic + nematic) phases does not seem to be pressure-limited, rather it increases with pressure.

 Title    pVT Measurements and Related Studies on the Binary System /iC16H34 -tiC17H36 and on wC18H38 at High Pressures  
 Abstract    The phase diagram of the binary system nC16H34 -rcC17H36 has been established at ambient pressure using DSC and crystallographic measurements. At low temperatures below the rotator phase RI there exist two crystal forms Op (about jc(C17) = 0.25) and Mdci (about x(C17) = 0.67) which are different from the crystal structures of the pure compounds (Tp for C 16 and Oi for C 17). Furthermore two compositions: (a) C 16/C 17 = 3:1 and (b) = 1:2, which correspond to the coexistence range of Op and Mdci, were chosen for high pressure DTA and pVT measurements, yielding the following findings: The specific volume of the rotator phase of C 17 is distinctly lower than those of the binary systems at the same state point. Assuming the existence of a metastable rotator phase for C 16, an excess volume of A V E/V « 0.01 can be estimated. Due to the very enlarged coexistence range of RI, the mixtures reach their lower transition point at considerably lower temperatures (in isobaric measurements) or higher pressures (in isothermal measurements), where the specific volume is lower than that of C 17 at its transition point. Furthermore, the volume and enthalpy changes of the O ord -RI transition is distinctly smaller for the binary systems than for pure C 17. Thus the specific volumes of the phases Op and Mdci are appreciably larger than t>(spec.) of C 17. Op and Mdci have practically the same specific volume in accordance with the crystallographic results. Enthalpy values are obtained with the aid of the Clausius-Clapeyron equation which agree well with enthalpies derived from the DSC measurements. Furthermore, pVT data have been established for the liquid and solid phases of nC18H38 in the neighbourhood of the melting curve, allowing to determine volume and enthalpy changes of melting as a function of pressure.

 Title    DTA and Dielectric Studies under Pressure of a Smectogen Substance with a Strong Perpendicular Dipole Moment  
 Abstract    The phase diagram of a substance with two CN groups attached to the benzene ring at lateral posi­ tions (CNCN) has been obtained with differential thermal analysis (DTA). The pressure range of the smectic A phase is limited, resulting in a triple point (Cr, SA, L) at 135 MPa and 371 K. However, the SA-phase exists also above the triple point as a metastable phase. The transverse relaxation times rx were obtained from the dielectric spectra measured for several isotherms as a function of pressure with­ in the SA-phase of CNCN. The activation volume, A#Vj_ = RT (d In = (52 ± 3) cm3/mol is larg­ er than A Vj|, recently derived from the pressure dependence of the longitudinal relaxation times for other substances in the SA-phase. It is concluded that due to steric hindrances made by the cyano groups the molecular rotations around the long axes become strongly slowed down by pressure and the smec­ tic phase disappears
