Liquid crystals have found wide applications in many fields ranging from detergents to information displays and they are also increasingly being used in the 'bottom-up' self-assembly approach of material nano-structuration. Moreover, liquid-crystalline organizations are frequently observed by biologists. Here we show that one of the four major lyotropic(More)
Micron-long germanium-based double-walled imogolite nanotubes were synthesized at high concentrations, as evidenced by cryo-TEM, AFM, SAXS and IR characterization methods. In addition, the spontaneous formation of a liquid-crystalline phase was observed. The novel synthesis route made it possible for the first time to obtain both long and concentrated(More)
