Abstract


In this work, we have analyzed the experimental pressure-temperature behavior at the isotropic-nematic phase transition of the liquid crystals PAP, 5CB, MBBA, and EBBA at 1 atm by using the HERSW Convex Peg model in conjunction with the IPCM model. We have calculated the molecular volume values for the hard and attractive cores from theoretical quantum calculations at the PM3, PM6, B3LYP/6-311++G(d,p)//PM6, and M06/6-311++G(d,p)//PM6 levels of theory. The results suggest that the best theoretical prediction of the experimental pressure-temperature behavior is obtained when the molecular volume is evaluated at the DFT level.
