To determine the supramolecular organization of the banana-shaped compound – bis-{3,4,5-tri[4-(4'-nonyloxybenzoyloxy)]benzoylamino}-1,3-phenylene – numerous experiments were carried out by the method of molecular dynamics with molecular mechanics in the MDsimGrid program. The possible packings of the banana-shaped molecules in different phase conditions were discussed. The obtained data were compared to research results of the phase structure using synchrotron radiation method.

Keywords: banana-shaped mesogen, structure, synchrotron radiation, molecular dynamics with molecular mechanics, MDsimGrid program
