A series of rod-coil monomers and their corresponding polymers consisting of a rigid rod made up of two biphenyls connected through ester linkages and flexible poly(propylene oxide) (PPO) coils with different lengths were synthesized. The supramolecular structural behavior in the melt state upon polymerization of the rod-coil monomers was highlighted.
