Side-chain type liquid crystalline polyacetylene, which has mesogenic moieties as side chains, is one of the promising materials for practical applications in the electronics. Micropatterning of the conductive polymer is a significant issue in this field. We show a simple method to fabricate micropatterns of side-chain type liquid crystalline polyacetylene derivative. Under dry condition, stripes patterns and lattice pattern were formed based on the fingering instability and stick-slip motion of the receding meniscus. Honeycomb-patterned polymer film was obtained by casting polymer solution under humid condition. The micropatterns drastically changed by changing solution concentration and preparation conditions.
