(4-(4'octylobiphenyl)carboxylan) 4-(2-methylobuthyl) phenol (CE8), the substance showing complex polymorphism, has been investigated using the dielectric spectroscopy method. This substance exhibited polymorphism during heating and cooling: a few smectic phases, a cholesteric phase, and a blue phase as well. Despite the fact that the substance polymorphism depends on the rate of heat flow existing of the blue phase has been confirmed by polarizing microscopic observations as well as dielectric spectroscopy investigations.
