Jiangshui Luo et al. at Sichuan University have published an interesting research article investigating the mesophase, usually referred to as the plastic crystalline state.
Phase transitions of the molecular plastic crystal neopentyl glycol were studied using permittivity and conductivity data, via the variable-temperature broadband dielectric spectroscopy.
