This work is pertinent to bipolymers. We have used a theoretical model to calculate transition temperatures for 10,000 different chemical sequences of a random terpolymer analogous to one synthesized in our laboratory. We have also analyzed by optical microscopy the phase separation of the experimental polymer into two fluids, one anisotropic and one isotropic. These experimental results are discussed in the context of the calculations. This work is pertinent to bipolymers.
