To the yankee version we're happy that our modest paintings, released a while in the past in Russian in Moscow* and which attracted the eye of polymer experts, t will now be on hand to the EngJish conversing viewers of scientists - chemists, physicists, and technologists engaged in growing new varieties of polymer materi als for contemporary know-how and dealing at the basic prob lems of the solid-state physics and constitution of polymer- as a result of initiative of Plenum Press. In polymer technology, the Eighties have been marked by way of the beginning of a brand new box and a brand new medical pattern relating to the dis covery and research of a formerly unknown type of polymers thermotropic liquid-crystalline polymers - and the extra improvement of the elemental theoretical strategies of the liquid-crystalline (mesomorphic) kingdom of macromolecular com kilos. This country is a section country in thermodynamic equi librium characterised via the anisotropy of the constitution and homes due to one-dimensional or two-dimensional ordering. Such structures have an ordered yet at the same time labile constitution that can simply be altered via mechanical, electric, or magnetic fields; the polymer approach then acquires certain actual and optical homes. those prop erties, that are received within the liquid-crvstalline nation, are then fastened within the sturdy on the working temperatures. *N.
