The POM of monomer M, revealed that [M.sub.1] exhibited an enantiotropic oily streak texture and a broken focal conic texture during its heating and cooling cycles.
All mesophases are enantiotropic, since they are observed in both heating and cooling scans.
The phases and their transition temperatures shown in Table 1 are obtained from POM for nanodoped p-n-alkyloxybenzoic acids which exhibit enantiotropic behavior.
Uryu and coworkers synthesized LCPUs through the reaction of para-substituted diisocyanate monomers such as 2,5-toluene diisocyanate (2,5-TDI) or 1,4-phenylene diisocyanate (1,4-PDI) with 4,4'-bis([omega]-hydroxyalkoxy)biphenyls and found the enantiotropic behavior of LCPUs [8].
In addition, OPU-6 exhibited enantiotropic behavior and [T.sub.i] of OPU-6 was constant regardless of the cooling rate.
Because of these reasons, OPU-6 exhibited enantiotropic behavior, where the mesophase exist both on cooling and heating.
