Abstract

The molecular field treatment developed for analysis of phase equilibria of meson-nonmesogen liquid crystal mixtures was applied to a quantitative description of the phase transition behavior of mesophase pitches, which were prepared by mixing a benzene-soluble fraction with a benzene-insoluble fraction of coal-tar pitch. The result showed that such a simplified theoretical treatment can be used to describe a phase diagram for a mesophase pitch.
