Abstract : This Report will account for some of the preparations prior to the commencement of the actual research to be started when the first staff to be engaged will be in position. As originally proposed, our plans on rigid molecule liquid crystal forming polymers, including some biomolecular structure hierarchies were laid out, our respective parts delineated and lines of realistic mutual cooperation identified. Accordingly the Bristol effort will concentrate on: a) the influence of flow on liquid crystal formation and on the associated rheology with subsequent attack on the resulting structures, b) crystallization from the liquid crystalline state with the study of the morphology and structure hierarchy.
