Usage

In literature:

Phototropic and radio-thermotropic reactions would therefore prove to be essentially similar.
"Life Movements in Plants, Volume II, 1919" by Sir Jagadis Chunder Bose

In science:

In previous studies of the continuous nematic to smectic-A transition in a variety of thermotropic liquid crystals the aerosil gel appeared to pin, at random, the phase of the smectic density modulation.
First order isotropic - smectic-A transition in liquid crystal-aerosil gels
Much effort has been devoted to experimental characterization and theoretical description of the SmA phase of thermotropic liquid crystals [3, 4].
First order isotropic - smectic-A transition in liquid crystal-aerosil gels
The cyanobiphenyls are a well-studied family of thermotropic liquid crystals .
First order isotropic - smectic-A transition in liquid crystal-aerosil gels
This shouldn’t be too much of a surprise, since most thermotropic nematics are, after all, dense molecular liquids, and it is well known that the structure and dynamics in such systems are dictated by short-range repulsive interactions.
Dipolar interactions, molecular flexibility, and flexoelectricity in bent-core liquid crystals
The model takes into account an explicit solvent, which permits the study of thermotropic, as well as lyotropic, phase transitions between lamellar, Lα, and inverted hexagonal, HII, phases.
