Abstract

Links between chemical sequence structure in self-ordering polymers and their physics are still to be established. In order to address this problem we have proceeded to synthesize a sequentially ordered and regioregular terpolymer which exhibits liquid crystallinity. Neglecting end groups, this polymer is a constitutional isomer of a chemically random liquid crystal polymer reported previously. The synthesis of ordered-disordered chemical analogues has been difficult in the past either because of the absence of liquid crystallinity in highly regular chains or because of difficulties in developing regioregular polyesters.
