Novel liquid crystals from side-chain polymers with oligoethyleneoxide spacers
A series of new side-chain polymers with acrylate and methacrylate backbones, methoxybiphenyl mesogenic groups, and oligothyleneoxide spacers were synthesized. Two of the polymers were studied using optical microscopy and x-ray diffraction. Preliminary results suggest that both are liquid crystalline, one being a new type of nematic, the other an ordered smectic. © 1986 Gordon and Breach, Science Publishers. Inc. and OPA Ltd.
