Abstract
A review of structural investigations of polymer cyclolinear organosiloxanes and monomer hydroxyderivatives of organosiloxanes which form thermotropic liquid crystalline phases is presented. In order to investigate the structure of these compounds x-ray diffraction of solid crystalline and liquid crystalline samples have been done as well as spectroscopic investigations and molecular modeling. Molecular modeling based on the obtained earlier results on hydroxyorganosiloxanes gave us the possibility of predicting the existence of the same phase for the hydroxycarbosilanes that were synthesized and described in present work. The molecular modeling of cyclolinear organosiloxanes gave us possibility to describe structure of their representative on atomic level.
