Abstract: Mesophase transitions in a thermotropic liquid crystalline polymer comprising p‐hydroxybenzoic acid (PHB) and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) in a copolymer ratio of 60/40 were studied by means of optical microscopy, light scattring, and wide‐angle X‐ray diffraction (WAXD). According to time‐resolved light scattering and optical microscopic studies, at about 250°C, a mesophase transition was evident in which Schlieren texture developed with elapsed time. This transition has been identified as a solid crystal‐…
