'H-NMR spectroscopy is employed to investigate the orientational order in the nematic and smectic A, B, and crystal G phases formed by 4-( 2-methylbuty1)phenyl 4'n-heptylbiphenyl- 4-carboxylate-d,, . Evidence of the lock in the trans-conformation of the first two mcthylene groups of the n-heptyl chain is found in the S, and C; phases. The dynamics of the aromatic molecular core are studied in a temperature interval including the SA-S, transition, by the analysis of the deuterium Zeeman and Quadrupolar relaxation times using the rotational diffusion model. Hence the diffusion constants related to the molecular spinning and tumbling motions are evaluated.
