Supercritical fluid swelling of liquid crystal films. (2008)

Abstract The influence of liquid and supercritical carbon dioxide and liquid propane on the structural properties of both ionic and nonionic surfactant-based liquid crystal films is discussed in this paper. Swelling of the films, measured using in situ small-angle neutron scattering (SANS), was found to be dependent on the solubility of the propane/carbon dioxide in the micelles of the respective liquid crystals. Additionally, under certain pressure conditions the structural properties of some of the films were observed to change, ultimately leading to a loss of order in the micellar arrays of the liquid crystals.
