Abstract: The paper presents the following results: (1) pressure induced mesomorphism in p-p'-n-butylazobenzene and biphenyl p-ethyl benzoate. (2) the monotropic nematic-isotropic transition in trans-p-n-propoxy-x-methyl cyanophenyl cinnamate becoming enantiotropic under pressure, (3) suppression of the cholesteric mesophase in cholesteryl nonanoate and the location of a solid-cholesteric-isotropic triple point at sim 2.85 kbar. confirming an earlier observation of Keyes. Weston and Daniels on the same compound, (4) a measurement of dT/dp for the solid-smectic A, smectic A-cholesteric and cholesteric-isotropic transitions in cholesteryl myristate and a comparison with the values evaluated from the Clausius-Clapeyron equation using the known latent heat and volumetric data.
