Linear thermotropic liquid crystalline polymers based on two bisphenol monomers and terephthaloyldichloride were prepared via melt polymerization. Fibers from liquid crystalline polymers were spun above the mesophase transition temperature. In this work, the mechanical and morphological properties of fibers based on such polymers were studied. High values of tensile strength and tensile modulus were obtained, and we tried to prove these high mechanical properties quantitavely by using rheological pro…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
