# What is the explanation of the odd even effect in liquid crystals?

What is the most accepted theory for explaining the odd even effect in liquid crystals? Can anyone explain and refer the corresponding paper?

• Do you have access to a literature search tool like e.g. SciFinder, ISI Web of Science, or even Google Scholar? Have you already done some searching using any of those methods? – MarcoB Jun 2 '15 at 5:47
• I hope you mean liquid crystals with LC. I also added the reference request to the question, if I introduced any mistakes, please edit yourself. – Martin - マーチン Jun 2 '15 at 6:42
• I have been busy in going through more and more about main chain LC and did not search rigorously. But I did search about odd even effect but did'nt get any good results. Searched in Google. I will try to look whether my Institute has SciFinder access or not – Punarbasu Roy Jun 2 '15 at 11:42
