Abstract
Results of the thermodynamic study of the molecular interaction in Langmuir films of mixtures of 4-n-octyl-4'- cyanobiphenyl (8CB) and 4-pentyl-4'-cyanoterphenyl (5CT) are presented. Both mixed materials are thermotropic liquid crystals and as a single component material is able to form a monolayer at the air-water interface. We demonstrate the effect of interaction of two similar liquid crystal molecules and how the surface pressure is affected by mixing the components in different mole fractions. The surface pressure-area isotherms indicate that 8CB and 5CT are immiscible in whole mole fraction range.
