Abstract

The possibility of a biaxial nematic phase was first proposed in 1970 by Freiser while the first experimental results were reported in 1980 by Yu and Saupe. This was followed by other early reports on the synthesis of thermotropic biaxial nematics and a review and discussion of such materials was given by Luckhurst.
