Frontispiece: The Shape of Things To Come: The Formation of Modulated Nematic Mesophases at Various Length Scales
Richard J. Mandle
The molecular factors underpinning the twist–bend nematic phase in liquid-crystalline dimers and bimesogens are now largely understood. The discovery of a linear relationship between TNTB–N and TN–Iso taken in conjunction with experimental demonstration of the importance of bend angle demonstrates that this mesophase is driven by gross shape, the minimisation of free or excluded volume and entropy. For more information see Concept article by R. J. Mandle on page 8771 ff.
