In this study, firstly, retention behavior of solvents on the liquid crystalline material 4-decyloxybiphenyl-4'-carboxylic acid (DBCA) has been studied by inverse gas chromatography (IGC) technique. Liquid crystal (LC) selectivity was investigated using the acetate isomers by the IGC method at temperatures between 333.2 K and 543.2 K. Later on, the interactions of LC with n-octane, n-nonane, n-decane, undecane, dodecane, tridecane, npropyl benzene, isopropyl benzene, ethylbenzene, chlorobenzene and toluene between 518.2 K and 543.2 K were examined. LC-solvent interaction parameters for Flory-Huggins theory, chi(12)*, and equation of state theory, chi(12)*, effective exchange energy parameters, X-eff, the weight fraction activity coefficent, Omega(infinity)(1), the partial molar heat of mixing at infinite dilution of the solvent, Delta H-1(infinity), molar heat of vaporization of solvent, Delta H-v and the partial molar heat of sorption of the solvent, Delta H-1,H-s were obtained.
