Riassunto:  A thiol-yne click chemistry reaction is presented, for the first time, to prepare liquid crystalline elastomers. The synthetic strategy is based on two liquid crystalline monomers, one bearing an alkyne group and the second bearing two thiol groups, to create a liquid crystalline network with a mixed side-chain/main-chain structure. The resulting material, having this macromolecular structure, is able to undergo bigger contractions than the common LCEs prepared using photopolymerization and having a side-chain structure. This preparation method results in a good strategy also for miniaturization of LCE devices, a hot topic in microrobotics and fluidic-photonics.

Ulteriori informazioni:  The research leading to these results has received funding from European Research Council under the European Union\'s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013)/ERC grant agreement no. [291349] on photonic microrobotics and the MINECO project MAT 2011-27978-C02-01. FEDER and Government of Aragon funding is also acknowledged. We deeply appreciate the help of Dr I. Ochoa and coworkers from the Institute of Engineering Research (I3A) of the University of Zaragoza on the study of mechanical properties of the films.
