About this book

This book introduces anisotropic innovations in liquid crystalline polymers as well as new nanocomposite materials and testing techniques. The authors detail the newest discoveries of material properties, material types and phases, and material characterization. This interdisciplinary work creates valuable links that strengthen the approach to the evolving field of liquid crystalline polymers/ materials.

About the authors

Drs. Vijay Kumar Thakur and Michael R. Kessler are both at the School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering, Washington State University.

Reviews

“As is true of liquid crystals in general, liquid crystal polymers (LCP), the subject of 20 chapters comprising this suitably conceived, professional-level survey of the field, are distinguished by their unique isotropic properties and molecular architecture. … Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students, researchers/faculty, professionals/practitioners.” (L. W. Fine, Choice, Vol. 53 (10), June, 2016)
