Abstract: We have employed high-resolution calorimetric techniques in order to investigate the unresolved issue of the existence of a nematic phase for the liquid crystal dodecylcyanobiphenyl. Various heating and cooling runs were performed on dodecylcyanobiphenyl samples of different origin and their analysis did not reveal any signature of a nematic phase. The calorimetric results are presented in detail and they are additionally supported by optical polarising microscopy observations.
