Title: Effects of tacticity and chiral center-to-dipole distance on mesogen-free liquid crystalline self-assembly of sulfonyl-containing comb-like polymers

Abstract

Mesogen-free comb-like polyethers bearing strongly interacting mono- and di-sulfonylated side chains exhibit well-defined liquid crystalline self-assembly.
