English Supramolecular attachment of mesogenic or non-mesogenic side chains to polymer backbones can result in the formation of liquid crystalline morphologies. The various parameters that can be tuned in order to achieve these morphologies, such as the type of non-covalent bonding chemistry (hydrogen bonding, ionic bonding, metal coordination, π–π interactions), the polymeric template architecture, and the side chain structure and properties, are reviewed in what follows, with emphasis placed on the role these parameters play in the determination of the final material morphologies and properties.
