Many researchers have reported the synthesis, phase behavior, curing behavior, and thermal properties of various LCERs that include several basic rigid rod mesogenic group types, such as biphenyl [12-17], ester [18-24], [alpha]-methylstilbene [25-30], azine [31-33], and naphthalene [34, 35], The biphenol-based LCER synthesized by Su [12] showed a high glass transition temperature ([T.
