1 January 1998 Influence of thermal neutrons on fatty acids with mesomorphic behavior
Author Affiliations +
The influence of thermal neutron irradiation on the smectic- liquid-crystal properties of arachidic and elaidic fatty acids is investigated. These fatty acids are either precursors or constituents of biological membrane. Microstructural aspects and electric measurements are presented to determine the external voltage dependence of current intensity through the sample. A thermodynamic model, which is in good agreement with experimental data, is described.
