Abstract
The novel type of side chain liquid crystal polymers (SCLCPs)--poly(vinylsilanes) with 4-methoxyphenyl-4'- alkenyloxybenzoates were made via polymerization of dimethylphenylvinylsilane and trimethylvinylsilane, followed by functionalization of linear polymers and hydrosilylation of the respective mesogenic alkenes. They form smectic A phase in a broad range of temperatures and their thermal behavior resembles that of SCLCP based on linear polycarbosilane backbone.
