Abstract

The refractive indices (n e, n o) and density have been measured as a function of temperature in the liquid-crystalline and liquid phases of nematic 1-(4-trans hexylcyclohexyl)-4-(2-4-isothiocyanato phenyl)ethyl benzene. The molecular polarizability and orientational order parameter have been computed using the Neugebauer anisotropic local field model. The distribution function f(β), and hence the higher order parameter ⟨P 4⟩, and nematic pair-potential have been computed at different temperatures in the nematic phase.
