Tapered mesogens self-assemble into supramolecular columns or spheres. The resulting supramolecules further form 2-D columnar phases or 3-D cubic phases. In this project, a series of alkali 3,4,5-trialkyloxybenzoate salts and their blends with n-alkanes are investigated by small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS), oriented fibre wide angle X-ray scattering (WAXS), and small angle neutron scattering (SANS) to reveal the packing mechanism.
