Abstract: Abstract Water sorption tests have been carried out for a novel epoxy resin having liquid crystalline character. The sorption isotherm. Relative to the expoxy resin cured in the nematic phase, does not indicate any substantial difference from the resin cured in the isotropic state. This is an indication that, as far as this class of thermosets is considered, the liquid crystalline order does not affect mechanism and equilibrium values of water uptake.
