    Abstract

    Pre-organization effects are investigated for the laterally-connected liquid crystals possessing a biphenyl connecting group. The homeotropic texture of the N phase of a free-standing film sample was found to change into the other Schlieren texture on cooling even in the N phase, which then changes into the Schlieren texture of the SmC phase on further cooling. The possibility of the emergence of biaxiality in the N phase is discussed.
