Abstract : The goal of this chapter is to discuss the dependence between various molecular parameters including structure, molecular weight, architecture, etc., and phase behavior. An attempt will be made to follow this trend on passing from a molecular to a macromolecular liquid crystal. The main goal is to provide the reader with the presently available tools which can be used to tailor-make liquid crystalline polymers. A brief and general introduction to low molar mass and polymeric liquid crystals which is required for this purpose will also be made. jg
