The Sharpless asymmetric dihydroxylation has been utilised to synthesise a new glassy chiral dopant with large helical twisting power (β) and remarkable solubility in nematic liquid crystal hosts. Values of β range between +30.7 and +47.7 μm−1 in five different nematic hosts. A 26% mixture in E7 is homogenous indefinitely and induces a room-temperature blue phase. 
Chiral Induction in Liquid Crystals with Dopants Derived from 1-Phenyl-2-Aminoalcohols

LIQUID CRYSTALLINE SYSTEM: A NOVEL APPROACH FOR DRUG DELIVERY
Liquid crystaline system is a thermodynamically stable phase which is characterized by anisotropy. LC’s are also termed as mesophase as they exhibit isotropic properties and fluid-like behavior under
Alignment control of carbon nanotube forest from random to nearly perfectly aligned by utilizing the crowding effect.
TLDR
A general approach to control the alignment of few-walled CNT forests from nearly random to nearly ideally aligned by tailoring the density of active catalysts at the catalyst formation stage, which can be experimentally achieved by controlling the CNT forest mass density.
PHARMACEUTICAL APPLICATIONS OF LIQUID CRYSTAL WITH SPECIAL EMPHASIZED ON ADVANCED DRUG DELIVERY SYSTEM: AN OVERVIEW
Liquid crystals are substances that flow like liquid but maintain some of the ordered structure characteristic of crystalline solid. Liquid crystal can be divided into thermotropic and lyotropic
