The terms 'liquid crystal' or 'liquid crystal display' (LCD) are well-known in the context of flat-screen televisions, but the properties and history of liquid crystals are little understood. This book tells the story of liquid crystals, from their controversial discovery at the end of the nineteenth century, to their eventual acceptance as another state of matter to rank alongside gases, liquids and solids. As their story unfolds, the scientists involved and their works are put into illuminating broader socio-political contexts

The crystal structures at room temperature of all the members of the series are now solved, showing the existence . At higher temperature, these compounds present a solid mesophase, defined as rotator, a liquid crystal phase and a liquid phase, all of them with a similar local arrangement.

The crystal structures at room temperature of all the members of the series are now solved, showing the existence of two polymorphic forms in the room temperature. crystal phase, different for short and long-chain members. Since some lead(II) soaps appear as degradation compounds in oil paintings, the solved crystal structures of lead(II) soaps can now be used as fingerprints for their detection by X-ray diffraction.

A History of Liquid Crystals. David Dunmur and Tim Sluckin. Presents science and history behind a familiar and everyday technology. Puts the scientific story into socio-political context. The liquid crystal display has changed the world and will continue to do so. 'Soap, Science, and Flat-Screen TVs' is a true and valuable history of its first 100 years, embracing as it does both the scientific literature and the history and socio-economic background of the individuals and institutions that make up the story.

David Dunmur and Tim Sluckin provide an inside view of the science of the liquid crystals that are responsible for the displays that have not only become our windows into the digital world, but have also offered structural insights into living systems.

The terms 'liquid crystal' or 'liquid crystal display' (LCD) are well-known in the context of flat-screen televisions, but the properties and history of liquid crystals are little understood. This book tells the story of liquid crystals, from their controversial discovery at the end of the nineteenth century, to their eventual acceptance as another state of matter to rank alongside gases, liquids and solids. As their story unfolds, the scientists involved and their works are put into illuminating broader socio-political contexts. In recent years, liquid crystals have had a major impact on the display industry, culminating in the now widely available flat-screen televisions; this development is described in detail over three chapters, and the basic science behind it is explained in simple terms accessible to a general reader. New applications of liquid crystals in materials, bio-systems, medicine and technology are also explained.The authors' approach to the subject defines a new genre of popular science books. The historical background to the scientific discoveries is given in detail, and the personal communications between the scientists involved are explored. The book tells the story of liquid crystals, but it also shows that scientific discovery and exploitation relies on human interactions, and the social and political environments in which they work.
