The deuterium Zeeman spin-lattice relaxation times T,, in 4,4’-di-n-heptylazobenzene(HB), 4,4‘-di- n-heptylazoxybenzene (HAB), and 4,4’-di n-octylazoxybenzene (OAB) deuterated on the aromatic rings and on the first methylene group of the chains were measured at 10 and 46.04 MHz by means of the inversion-recovery technique. Measurements were made throughout the mesomorphic range and also in the isotropic phase. The relaxation rates show a discontinuity at the isotropic-nematic transition for all deuterons not ascribable to the onset of orientational order. The trends of InR are linear within the different phases except near phase transitions, and allow to obtain apparent activation energies for the overall motions of the different C-D bonds.
