Paper Abstract

Two different ways have been investigated to obtain side-chain liquid crystalline polymers suitable for second harmonic generation (SHG). The aim of the first one was to obtain host nematic comb-like homopolymers having a small degree of polar association of their side chains, by using a 3-fluoro-4-cyanophenyl benzoate end group. The second way consisted in synthesizing liquid crystalline polymeric systems where a mesogenic monomer and a monomeric molecule bearing a group exhibiting a large molecular hyperpolarizability p , were copolymerized. In this paper, we report on the synthesis and the phase behaviour of these two families of polymers.
