The solubility of two partially deuterated thioindigo dopants in a smectic liquid crystal host was evaluated by variable temperature 2H NMR spectroscopy and polarized microscopy. 2H NMR spectra showed that the dopant ( Ô )-6,6¾ -bis(2-octyloxy)-5,5¾ -dinitrothioindigo-d 6 forms a homogeneous solution with the smectic phases of the liquid crystal host ( Ô )-4-(4-methylhexyloxy) phenyl 4-decyloxybenzoate (PhB) up to its saturation point of 3 mol %. These results are consistent with polarizeddoi:10.1080/02678290010005613 fatcat:sp4ysvjl2zf5batanevfvdgim4
