Abstract: A powder X-ray diffractometer study of hexakis(tridecylsulfono)benzene (HASB13) has been carried out over the temperature range 20 to above 80 °C. In this range three phase transitions are observed by sharp discontinuities in the diffraction pattern indicating a solid-solid, solidmesophase, and mesophase-liquid transition. The mesomorphic phase is identified as a hexagonal columnar discotic mesophase, Dhd, with intercolumnar spacing of 25.7 Å and average stacking distance of 4.9 Å. Both distances are independent of temperature but there appears to be a gradual increase in the stacking disorder as the temperature is increased. The magnitude of the intercolumnar distance suggests a considerable degree of side chain disorder. A detailed X-ray diffraction study was also performed at room temperature on a single crystal of hexakis(propylsulfono) benzene (HASB3), which is not mesogenic. The results provide detailed information on the structure of HASB 3 which is used in the interpretation of HASB 13 results.
