Abstract: The synthesis and characterization of novel thermotropic liquid crystalline poly(ary1 ether ketone)s based on the reaction of a liquid crystalline mesogen containing monomer, biphenol, and a crystal-disrupting substituted monomer, t-butyl-or phenyl-, hydroquinone with 4,4'-d~uorobemphenone are described. Two families of copolymers-a biphenol/t-butylhydroquinone series of 90. 75. 50, 25, and 0% biphenol, and a biphenol/phenylhydroquinone series of 75, 50, 25, and 0%-are evaluated. Thermotropic liquid crystalli…
