High-resolution surface tension measurements have been conducted on free-standing films of selected liquid-crystal compounds containing different combinations of flexible tails. The tail combinations studied were two hydroalkyl tails, one hydroalkyl tail and one fluoroalkyl tail, and two fluoroalkyl tails, respectively. Comparisons of the results with existing data obtained from other measurement techniques are made.
