Homologous Series

After a successful search you can compare a compound within the homologous series option. The compound that is being analysed needs to have an alkyl-chain at either the or right or both ends of the molecule. Clicking onto the 'homologous series'-item will provide a graph of phase transitions, exhibited by the liquid crystal series from which the comparisons can be drawn.

The example below shows the compound '5CB',

and the corresponding graph. The thick line among the others shows the fit of the actual compounds in comparison to the statistically collected data, for the '1_Cy-Cn'-series'.
