Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Classically, liquid crystalline polymers (LCPs) have been divided in lyotropic LCPs and thermotropic LCPs. Over the years, we have noticed a marked shift in the development of new LCPs, based on new potential applications in domains like actuators, organic photovoltaic or renewable energy. Beside historical families of LCPs (main-chain, side-chain, side-on, combined), new macromolecular architectures have been explored like liquid crystalline elastomers, dendritic LCPs or block copolymers. This special issue aims to provide a channel to showcase the recent developments in liquid crystalline polymer domain: synthesis, characterization, physical properties and applications.
