Abstract

We present results of an x-ray scattering study on the rotator phases of normal alkanes: CH2-(CH3)n-CH2 (20 ≤ ≤ 33). We have characterized a new tilted rotator phase and measured the distortion and tilt order parameters in all 5 rotator phases. We have shown that there is no strong even-odd chain effect within the rotator phases.
