Abstract:

Upon cooling, solutions of rigid-rod macromolecules often form gels . These can be further processed to form microcellular materials with very regular structure. A two -stage melting of the precursor gels has been tentatively associated with a bimodal structure found in the microcellular materials. Microcellular foams, PBLG, Rigid-rod polymers.
