Positional Order in the Columnar Phase of Lyotropic Chromonic Liquid Crystals Mediated by Ionic Additives.

Positional Order in the Columnar Phase of Lyotropic Chromonic Liquid Crystals Mediated by Ionic Additives.

Positional order in the lyotropic chromonic liquid crystals (LCLCs) is investigated in the supramolecular meeting of benzene 1,3,5-tricarboxamide (BTA) derivatives with the glucono-delta-lactone (GdL) acid additive by high-resolution synchrotron radiation small-angle X-ray scattering. The formation of positionally ordered hexagonal section is discovered to profoundly rely upon the concentrations of BTA derivatives, cBTA, and GdL components, caddtive, giving …
