Abstract : The Workshop began with an intriguing and provocative presentation of experimental work on model LC polymer systems which emphasized the importance of chain segregation according to chain length. The morphological studies set the stage for much debate on molecular origins of compressive failure. A review of Du Pont research on strategies for possible improvement in compressive strength in rigid-rod polymers was presented.
