Dynamics of side-chain liquid-crystalline polymers: a dielectric spectroscopy investigation.


We have studied the dynamics in two side-chain liquid-crystalline derivatives of poly(norbornene diethylester) with dielectric spectroscopy within the temperature range 190-433 K and the pressure range 1-3000 bars. Optical microscopy, x-ray scattering, and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) revealed the formation of a nematic- and a smectic-A phase… (More)
