Title: Synthesis and structures of hydrogen-bonded liquid crystalline polymers
Authors: Toh, Joan Cher Ling.
Keywords: DRNTU::Engineering::Materials::Organic/Polymer electronics
Issue Date: 2006
Abstract: Hydrogen-bonded liquid crystalline polymers have unique properties that combine many attractive features that are characteristic of conventional polymers and liquid crystals. Additionally, they have the ability to respond to external stimuli due to the reversibility of the hydrogen bond. The diverse properties of these materials have therefore opened up a multitude of promising applications and disciplines. Consequently, in order to attain a deeper understanding and aid the exploration of potential technological advancements in such materials, new hydrogen-bonded main chain liquid crystalline polymers were prepared. The structure-property relationships were reviewed and their thermal and liquid crystalline properties were examined.
