Liquid crystalline monomer and photoactive monomers with various structures were synthesized and copolymerized. The resulting copolymers contain fixed LC unit and varying photoactive units. The phase transition temperatures are found to be affected by both comonomer structure and spacer length. The transition temperatures of itaconate bearing copolymer are found to be higher at smaller spacer length.
