Abstract Mesomorphic, sorption and selective properties of the three-component sorbent based on the eutectic mixture of achiral liquid crystals 4-methoxy-4'-ethoxybenzene and 4,4'-diethoxyazoxybenzene and chiral macrocyclic heptakis(2,3,6-tri-O-methyl)-β-cyclodextrin were studied. It was established that macrocyclic additive induces formation of spirally twisted chiral nematic phase. Thermodynamic functions of sorption from the gas phase for 28 organic compounds (n-alkanes, cycloalkanes, arenes, monoatomic alcohols, heterocyclic compounds, optical isomers, camphene, pinene, butanediol-2, and 3) were determined. The reasons of manifestation of isomer-selective sorbent properties with respect to structural, cis-trans- and optical isomers in gas chromatography were discussed.
