Abstract

In the present work, our investigation is to study the optical and thermal properties of the binary mixture of cholesteric and nematic compounds, namely, cholesteryl oleate (CO) and p-Methoxybenzylidene-p-Ethylaniline (MBEA), which exhibits a very interesting liquid crystalline cholesteric and induced smectic phases like SmA, SmC*, SmC, and SmE phases sequentially when the specimen cooled from isotropic phase. The temperature variation of optical anisotropy is also discussed. X-ray studies have been carried out to understand the intermolecular interactions in the mixture. With the help of phase diagram, the phase behavior has also been discussed.
