Abstract

The anisotropic mechanical behavior of three liquid-crystalline elastomers with different type of cross linking was demonstrated. Composite materials SiF, SiH, and SiMC combined main-chain and side-chain nematic polymers and different linking mechanisms in their networks. The results are sensitive functions of the way networks are cross linked.
