Paper Abstract

Side chain liquid crystalline polymers offer unique advantages as a new class of organic materials with potential for nonlinear optical (nlo) response. Design and synthesis of a series of nitroaromatic side chain liquid crystalline polyesters was carried out employing the concept of having the nitroaromatic species serve concomitantly as both the nonlinear optical chromophore and as the (only) liquid crystalline moiety in the polymer.
