In recent years, rigid-rod polymers with regularly substituted flexible side branches have drawn a lot of attention, since they exhibit both high thermal resistance and excellent solubility1. In addition, these polymers, if properly designed, can become even fusible. In structure, most of them are crystalline2,3 and form sanidic liquid crystallinity4, even though they are strongly branched. This new crystal structure is called layered crystal structure.3
