Paper Abstract

A liquid crystalline monomer was photopolymerized under a variety of conditions by both free radical and cationic processes. Comparison of the polymerization rates and the polymer formed by the two mechanisms gives insight into polymerization in ordered phases. The polymerization exotherms generated by the free radical polymerization in the ordered cholesteric nematic and isotropic media were compared to those generated for a similar system upon polymerization in smectic and isotropic media.
