|Title:||Orientational orders of small anisotropic molecules confined in slit pores||Authors:||Zhou, X.
|Issue Date:||15-Mar-2004||Citation:||Zhou, X., Chen, H., Iwamoto, M. (2004-03-15). Orientational orders of small anisotropic molecules confined in slit pores. Journal of Chemical Physics 120 (11) : 5322-5326. ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1063/1.1647517||Abstract:||The orientationally ordered transitions of small anisotropic molecules confined in two parallel hard walls were studied using a constant pressure Monte Carlo molecular simulations. Based on free energy calculations of isotropic and nematic phases, the IN transition pressure was found to be about 5 for k=3.0. The results indicate that the confining surfaces can shift and drive isotropic-anisotropic phase transitions in small anisotropic molecules. It implies that small molecules can form liquid crystals due to the inducement of confirming surfaces.||Source Title:||Journal of Chemical Physics||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/65954||ISSN:||00219606||DOI:||10.1063/1.1647517|
