Abstract:

The book describes the progress in the field of liquid crystals from their discovery to the present time. It includes the classification of liquid crystals, their optical properties, the molecular structure of compounds which form liquid crystals, symmetry, x-ray structural analysis, theories of liquid crystal state, thermodynamic properties, magnetic properties, electric properties, ultrasonic effects, viscosity and surface tension. A brief chapter is devoted to the importance of liquid crystals in industrial applications, medicine and biology. In the last section procedures are given for the synthesis of ten compounds which form liquid crystals. The book has a 125 item bibliography. Author
