Chain folding in single crystals and sheared (“fiber”) samples of a liquid crystal polymer

  • S. Kent
  • P. H. Geil


Lamellar single crystals, ca. 100Å thick and with predominantly reentrant chain folding have been grown from the quiescent and sheared liquid crystalline state of a liquid crystalline random configuration terpolymer containing C7 flexible segment.
