Abstract: The mesophase structures of some flexible chain polymers, which do not contain mesogenic groups, but are able to form thermodynamically equilibrium mescmorphic states, were studied by means of the X-ray analysis, the differential scanning calorimetry, and other methods. The mesophase polyethylene in bicomponent polymer blends, mesomorphic ultra-high molecular weight polyphosp hazenes, and membrane polyvinylorganosilanes were investigated. The scheme of polymer phase transitions is discussed. Besides conformat…
