The study of liquid crystals began in 1888 when an Austrian botanist named Friedrich Reinitzer observed that a material known as cholesteryl benzoate had two distinct melting points (i.e., 145.50C & 178.50C) In his experiments, Reinitzer increased the temperature of a solid sample and observed the crystal changing into a hazy liquid. As he increased the temperature further, the material again changed into a clear, transparent liquid. Because of this early work, Reinitzer is often credited with discovering a new phase of matter - the liquid crystal.
