Homeotropically-aligned main-chain and side-on liquid crystalline elastomer films with high anisotropic thermal conductivities

Author affiliations

Abstract

Homeotropically-aligned main-chain and side-on liquid crystalline elastomer films are prepared by using LC thiol–ene and acrylate systems respectively. Evaluated by laser flash analysis, the room temperature thermal conductivities of these two LCP films in the film normal direction are both dramatically higher than those along the horizontal direction.
