The organization of carbon nanotubes is an important but challenging issue. This Minireview focuses on a novel approach based on the use of liquid crystals as host for nanotube dispersion and ordering. With these self-organizing fluids it is possible to control the nanotube orientation on a macroscopic scale, as the orientational order of the liquid crystal… CONTINUE READING
