Abstract
Some interesting experimental results involving new synthesized liquid crystals, derivatives of 4,4'-dihidroxyazobenzene and 4,4'-dihidroxy-azoxybenzene inferred by means of optical absorption spectroscopy are exposed. The absorption spectra dependence on the sample temperature in both heating and cooling processes is investigated. At the same time, the optical density is recorded at a fixed wavelength and it presents significant variations at phase transition temperatures. These data complete the results correlated with mesomorphism, obtained by classical techniques (DTA and microstructural analysis in polarized light).
