Paper Abstract

The results of dielectric studies of 6BAP(F) in the nematic and isotropic phases are presented. The substance has a negative dielectric anisotropy. The use of two experimental techniques, network analyzer and time domain spectroscopy, allowed to separate of two main relaxation processes: one connected with the molecular reorientations around the short axes and the second with rotations about the long axes, in the nematic as well as in the isotropic phases of 6BAP(F). The relaxation times and activation enthalpies for particular motions were obtained. The retardation factors characterizing the influence of the nematic order on both reorientations were calculated.
