 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    NMR Study of Molecular Dynamics in a D ho Columnar Mesophase  
 Abstract    In this paper we report the first molecular dynamics study combining fast field-cycling and conven-tional NMR techniques in a thermotropic liquid crystal of discotic molecules exhibiting an ordered columnar hexagonal mesophase. Using the association of these techniques we obtained proton T { data over a very large domain of Larmor frequencies (u/2n from 500 Hz to 85 MHz). The proton spin-lattice relaxation results were analysed considering the structure of the mesophase and the types of movements which are expected to influence significantly the relaxation rate, namely local molecu-lar rotational reorientations, inter-columnar self-diffusion and collective movements corresponding to bending and compression of the columns. We verified that these mechanisms dominate the relaxation respectively for high, medium and low Larmor frequencies.
