Abstract

Stimulus-responsive materials: This thesis describes the development of stimulus-responsive polymeric materials based on liquid crystalline polymers and hydrogels. Novel responsive molecular building blocks were designed and synthesised. Specific monomer mixtures were crosslinked by UV-photopolymerisation methods, and the response of the obtained (structured) material was analysed.
