|Title:||Frontier Orbital and Conformational Analysis of a Nematic Liquid Crystal: 4-n-heptyloxy-4´-cyanobiphenyl|
Singh, N B
|Abstract:||The 4-n-heptyloxy-4´-cyanobiphenyl (7OCB) is a member of 4-n-alkoxy-4´-cyanobiphenyl homologous series. This liquid crystal series is well known for its electro-optical properties. The 7OCB compound transforms from crystal to nematic at 53.5°C and nematic to isotropic phase at 75.0°C. Using Hartree-Fock and DFT methods with 6-31G(d,p) basis set, molecular geometry, conformational analysis, electronic structure, MEP, HOMO-LUMO surfaces and molecular parameters of 7OCB molecular system have been investigated. Efforts have been made to elucidate the physico-chemical properties of the 7OCB liquid crystal.|
