The thermotropic properties of cholesteric liquid crystal as a polymerisation medium for the synthesis of chiral polymers from achiral monomers were clarified. The chiral reaction medium was successfully employed to synthesise chiral polymers from thiophenes as achiral monomer. The polythiophenes thus prepared exhibit intense circular dichroism imparted by the physical chiral continuum of the reaction field. The chiral aggregate of the present polymers displays structural chirality, with optical activity derived not from the chirality of the individual main-chain but from the chiral architecture. The chiral polymers do not exhibit a thermotropic cholesteric liquid crystal phase but nematic liquid crystal character due to the release of the chiral architecture upon heating.
