Abstract

Small organic molecules can form liquid crystals, at or close to room temperature; as commonly known, these find many applications in the fabrication of electrooptical devices. This paper is not about those compounds; it is instead about a new class of polymeric materials that melt at high temperatures into fluids exhibiting liquid crystalline order.
