The solid states and phase transitions were studied in the nematogen EBBA. Differential scanning calorimetry, neutron diffraction and Raman scattering provided well-correlated results on the structure and dynamics of the solid phases. It was concluded that (a) EBBA has four different solid phases, (b) there is a difference between the dynamics, viz. the coherence length of phonons in the rapidly-cooled phases of MBBA and EBBA, (c) the molecular shape in the nematic phase can be determined by using the solid state structures.
