Liquid crystalline thermotropic and lyotropic nanohybrids

Author affiliations

Abstract

This review is meant to give the reader an insight into hybrids incorporating different types of nanoparticles, e.g. metallic or metal oxides, within different types of lyotropic and thermotropic liquid crystals, from relatively small calamitic molecules to the larger discotics and polymers. In particular, this review highlights the importance of nanoparticle–liquid crystal interactions in accessing hybrid materials that exhibit synergetic properties.
