It was denoted (44) that the presence of orange color is a reliable indicator of the cholesteric phase.
As no optical activity was observed in the monomers, the detection of a cholesteric phase and an optical rotation for each polymer suggests that for polyesters with this degree of polymerization, containing chiral centers in the main chain and hydroxyl groups of different reactivity, a nonrandom head-to-tail arrangement occurs.
As the material is chiral and exhibits a cholesteric phase at higher temperatures, the phase is classified as [S.
At last, the cell is sealed and kept at 75[degrees]C, and this temperature corresponds to a stable cholesteric phase for which the materials are viscous.
