Abstract

This paper summarizes recent efforts to extend these ideas to include mixtures of thermotropic liquid crystal polymers and determine the applicability of traditional blend concepts to these systems. Experimental results show that the structure of liquid crystal polymer blends depends on the chemical nature of the materials being blended. This idea is to be contrasted with known findings for small molecule liquid crystals in which similar types of liquid crystals are miscible with each other. The authors findings suggest that in liquid crystal polymer blends, such concepts are not strictly applicable. Instead, the ideas which have been developed to understand traditional polymer blends seem to be reasonable when applied to liquid crystal polymer blends.
