Development of a molecular-based Equation of State for Nematic Liquid Crystals


We develop an equation of state for describing the isotropic- and nematic fluid-phase behavior of a prototypical model for (thermotropic) liquid crystal (LC) molecules of prolate type. The molecular model assumes a LC molecule... [ view full abstract ]
