Carbon nanotubes in low molar mass liquid crystals

Schymura, S.; Park, J. H.; Dierking, I.; Scalia, G.


Carbon nanotubes constitute a highly anisotropic form of carbon with outstanding mechanical, thermal end electrical properties. Their dispersion and organization are important but challenging issues and this chapter describes the advantages of using thermotropic liquid crystals as host for nanotube dispersion and ordering.
