Numerous phosphorus-containing aromatic polyesters were prepared by polycondensation of silylated diphenols with dicarboxylic or phosphoric acid dichlorides. Phenyl phosphate and naphthyl phosphate, phenyl- or methylphosphonate groups were incorporated into poly (phenylhydroquinone terephthalate). Regardless of the substituent attached to the phosphorus atom the nematic phase disappeared when more than 20 mol% of the terephthalic acid was replaced by phosphoric or phosphonic acid units. Furthermore, phenylphosphonic acid was incorporated into various thermotropic copolyesters. It was found in all cases that the stability of the mesophase depends on the percentage of phosphorus and on the length of the repeating unit
