Abstract

An important and new feature of the systems being investigated is the ability to chemically crosslink the rods together. This new result is accomplished by copolymerizing n-hexyl-isocyanate with a smaller amount of 1,6-n-hexyl-isocyanate. The chemical and structural similarity of the two monomers supports the likelihood of equal rates of polymerization of the two resulting in a random copolymer. Crosslinking can occur when the growing head of one rod intersects and reacts with the dangling end of a diisocyanate molecule that has already been incorporated in another rod.
