Synthesis of Block and Graft Copolymers Containing Liquid Crystalline Segments
radical polymerization of a liquid crystalline acrylate monomer (LC monomer) in the presence poly(ethylene-co-vinyl acetate) functionalized with thiol groups as macrotransfer agent;
chemical modification of poly(styrene-b-acrylic acid), ionomers and t-butyl ester derived therefrom by reactive low molecular weight liquid crystals and,
radical block copolymerization between styrene and a LC monomer by INIFERTER techniques.
