In this study using a mean field model we obtain the phase line equations for the NA. NC and AC transitions near the NAC point in a mixture of liquid crystals. We then fit these phase line equations to the experimental data. This fitting shows that our theoretical phase diagram predicts the correct experimental behaviour of the phase diagram in a mixture of liquid crystals.

A mean field model near the NAC point in liquid crystals
Enginer, Y.; Salihoǧlu, S.; Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (2002-10-01)
In this study we obtain the phase line equations for the nematic-smectic A (NA), smectic A-smectic C (AC) and nematic-smectic C (NC) transitions using a mean field model. We fit these phase line equations to the experimental phase diagram near the Nenatic-smectic A-smectic C (NAC) point. Our calculated phase diagram agrees well with the experimental.

In this study we have developed a mean field model to obtain the phase diagrams for NH4Cl and NH4Br. The phase diagrams obtained from our macroscopic theory are in good agreement with those obtained experimentally.
T-X phase diagram of (NH4)(2)SO4/H2O
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit; Sen, S.; Salihoglu, S. (2007-04-01)
Using the mean field theory, we obtain the phase line equations for the liquid-solid I, liquid-solid II and solid I-solid II transitions in (NH4)(2)SO4/H2O. We fit our phase line equations to the experimental T-X phase diagram of this system. Thus, we are able to obtain the temperature and concentration dependencies of the order parameters and the free energies in this system.
A phase diagram near the NAC* point in liquid crystals
Salihoglu, S; Tublek, A; Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (Informa UK Limited, 2000-01-01)
Wt study here a mean field model to obtain the phase diagram (concentration versus temperature) near the NAC* point in a binary mixture of liquid crystal. Wr have Fitted our phase line equations to the experimental data for the mixture of SCE9 + SCE10 liquid crystals. We deduce fi om our analysis that there should exist a tricritical point close to the NAC* point on the AC* phase line.
T-X-Br phase diagram for the NH4BrxCl1-x system
Tari, O; Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit; Salihoglu, S (Informa UK Limited, 2000-01-01)
In this study using a mean field model we calculate the phase line equations for the beta-delta, beta-gamma and gamma-delta phase transitions in the NH4BrxCl1-x system. We then fit our phase line equations to the experimentally observed T-X-Br phase diagram for this system. Our calculated phase diagram agrees well with the observed one for the NH4BrxCl1-x system.
