Article Preview

Liquid crystalline polymer (LCP) and the copolymer of LCOand Pendant Polyhedral Oligomeric Silsequioxanes (LCP-POSS) showed the first-order photoisomerization reaction. As compared with LCP, the photoisomerization rate constant of LCP-POSS decreased a little. With a higher thermal stability and more stable LC behavior as well as a little decreased photoisomerization rate constant, the incorporation of POSS to azobenzene liquid crystalline polymers may have significant sense and will definitely play a key role in developing novel high-performance optic and photonic nanodevices.
