      Synthesis of thermotropic liquid crystalline polyesters derived from bis[4-hydroxy benzoyloxy]- 2-chloro-1,4-benzene (BHBOCB) and aliphatic dicarboxylic acid chlorides by interfacial polycondensation methodology is presented. Synthesised polyesters consist of bis[4-hydroxy benzoyloxy]-2-chloro-1,4-benzeneas a mesogen and aliphatic diacid chloride as flexible spacer. The length of oligomethylene units in the polymer was varied from the trimethylene to the dodecamethylene groups. Synthesized polyesters were characterizedby differential scanning calorimetry and optical microscopy. The transition temperatures and thermodynamic properties were studied for all these polymers. These polyesters exhibited thermotropic liquid crystalline behavior and showed nematic texture except decamethylene spacer. Decamethylene spacer based polyester showed marble texture of smectic C. Mesophase stability of these polyesters was higher than 123◦C (except first heating cycle of PE-1).
