From the Publisher
This volume explores the creation, study, and processing of new liquid-crystalline polymers. It covers not only the chemistry of liquid-crystalline polymers, but also the physics and engineering aspects of these materials. A wide range of topics is covered, including syntheses of main-chain
and side-chain LCPs, structural characterization of LP, rheology and processing, and applications such a electro-optics and "self-reinforcing" blends. This book presents a broad view of the direction of LCP research in both industry and academe.
