FIG. 1.

A simple schematic representation as well as the building blocks of main-chain LCEs of the present study are shown here. The chemical formulas of tetramethylsiloxane chain-extenders (a), the flexible pentafunctional crosslinkers (b) and the mesogenic molecules (c) are presented.

FIG. 2.

The profiles obtained by the ac runs (solid symbols) and the from relaxation runs (open symbols) are shown for LCE1 at the top layer (a) and LCE2 at the bottom layer (b), respectively.

Tables

Table I.

The scanning rate and T-step of ac and relaxation runs, the total enthalpy change involved in the transition of LCE1 and LCE2, the latent heat , the temperature range where half of occurs and the FWHM of the anomalies are presented here.
