|Title:||Study on lyotropic liquid crystals of the 3-octyloxy-2-hydroxypropyl trimethyl ammonium bromide-n-hexanolwater system|
|Abstract:||Phase diagram of ternary system for 3-octyloxy-2- hydroxypropyl trimethyl ammonium bromide (R8TAB)-n-hexanol- water has been investigated using turbidity titration method at 25 °C. Typical lyotropic liquid crystals (LLCs) of lamellar, hexagonal and cubic phases have been found in the system. The structure and the structure conversion have been determined using polarizing-light microscope, 2H nuclear magnetic resonance (2H NMR) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). Experimental results show that with the enhancement of relative amount of water in a mixture maintaining mass ratio of R8TAB to C6H13OH at 3:2, the phase transition is as follows: from mixed lamellar and hexagonal liquid crystals to mixed lamellar, hexagonal and cubic ones, then to single cubic one and finally to mixed hexagonal one and isotropic liquid phase.|
