Molecular order in bilayer, anticlinic and ferroelectric smectic C mesophases

In this work we present a proton NMR comparative study of the molecular order in the smectic C2 (\(\)), smectic C^* (\(\)) and anticlinic smectic C phases (\(\) and \(\)) of two liquid crystalline compounds. The second moments of the experimental proton NMR spectra are well explained taking into account two different molecular orientations models. From the analysis of our experimental results it was possible to estimate the tilt angles for all the smectic C phases studied in this work.
