Description

Packaging

1 g in glass bottle

250 mg in glass bottle

Bottomless glass bottle. Contents are inside inserted fused cone.

Application

8CB may be used in the preparation of asymmetrical zinc phthalocyanine (aZnPc)-functional photocurable copolymer.

Monolayer films of the LCs deposited onto highly ordered pyrolytic graphite, these self-assembled films display a wide variety of structural forms.

General description

4′-octyl-4- biphenylcarbonitrile (8CB) is a low molar mass liquid crystal (LCs), which shows different liquid crystalline phases depending on temperature conditions. Under normal temperature conditions 8CB exists only as bulk smectic-A phase. LCs are responsive to minor changes in temperature, shear, electric (or magnetic) fields, and the structure of solid surfaces with which they are in contact.
