Abstract
Pure fatty acids and mixtures, which can be found in the biological membrane, were prepared and studied in interaction with electric, magnetic and optic fields, under different temperature conditions. All the samples displayed a smectic C liquid crystalline texture, and ferroelectric behavior. The nonlinear electric and optic features of their response have been emphasized and correlated. Theoretical considerations are meant to explain this behavior, in connection with the living matter processes.
