Paper Abstract

In the introduction the aims of high pressure (h.p.) studies of molecular systems are discussed. Then some experimental results of h.p. studies of liquid crystals are presented. Special attention is paid to the results of dielectric studies of pentyl-cyanobiphenyl (5CB) as a function of temperature and pressure. The obtained results are analyzed in terms of Maier-Saupe theory of the nematic state. Some conclusions concerning the form of the interaction potential in liquid crystals are presented.
