Abstract

We have implemented a theoretical model for the numerical evaluation of the helical twisting power of chiral dopants in liquid crystal phases, on the basis of their shape and of solvent macroscopic properties. After summarizing the fundamentals of the method, the numerical procedure is briefly illustrated and the application to the case of biphenyl derivatives is presented.
