Title: New structural model of a chiral cubic liquid crystalline phase

Abstract

A new model of a chiral cubic phase is proposed, in which the continuous lattice is embedded on a WP minimal primitive surface and chirality is related to the alternating inclination of molecules in the neighbouring segments of non-flat hexagons.
