Liquid crystalline polyurethanes were prepared from 1,4-bis(6-hydroxyhexoxy)benzene (BHB6) and 2,5-tolylene diisocyanate (2,5-TDI) solution polymerization in dimethylformamide produced intrinsic viscosities in the range 0.26 and $0.42d{\ell}/g$. The polyurethanes were investigated by DSC, Polarizing microscopy, X-ray, $^1H$-NMR and IR spectroscopy. Polyurethanes of two different molecular weights were studied in detail and these will be referred to as low molecular weight and high molecular weight. Polyurethane 2,5-TDI/BHB6 with $[{\eta}]=0.26d{\ell}/g$ prepared from BHB6 and 2,5-TDI, exhibited monotropic liquid crystallinity, although these polyurethanes contained no mesogenic core unit. For example, LCPU-L(low molecular weight) exhibited $T_{I-LC}$ of $122^{\circ}C$ $T_{LC-K}$ $89^{\circ}C$.
