Kricheldorf and his co-workers found that most liquid crystalline polyimides synthesized from trimellitic anhydride were smectic liquid crystals. Pardey and his co-workers (18-20) synthesized a series of monotropic liquid crystalline poly(ester imide)s from N-(4-(chloroformyl) phenyl)-4-(chloroformyl) phthalimide and different diols with methylene units of 4 to 12 (n) and investigated their ordered structure, phase transition behavior and crystallization behavior.
