The binary mixture of 1-(para-Chloro benzylidene amino) -4-(2-n-hexylthio-1,3,4-oxadiazole-5yl) benzene and 1-(para-Nitro benzylidene amino)-4-(2-n-hexylthio-1,3,4-oxadiazole-5yl) benzene with different mole fractions has been characterized by a hot stage polarizing optical microscope (POM) to determine the type of texture, then investigated by differential scanning calorrimetry (DSC) technique to determine the specific enthalpies and transition temperatures of phases. The enthalpies of mixing have been calculated to suggest the molecules type. Continuously, The thermodynamic excess quantities (GE, SE and HE) were calculated by utilizing activity coefficient value of eutectic and isotropic phase, so molecular interactions behavior was described.


Keywords: Liquid crystals, Smectic, Binary system, Excess thermodynamic functions.
