Nanoparticle research has witnessed tremendous growth due their
unusual physical and chemical properties which differs from the
same bulk material. Liquid crystal, a fourth state of matter, is playing
significant role in the synthesis of size and shape-uniform
nanostructures and can be utilised as capping agent.The inclusion of
NPs in LC host produces significant changes in their physical
properties such as order parameter, birefringence and dielectric
anisotropy. The composite of nanomaterials and liquid crystal lead to
the formation of materials having new and exciting properties which
may find use in high-tech applications such as photoconductors, light
emitting diodes, photo-voltaic solar cells, thin film transistors, etc. In
this book author tried to focus on various strategies utilised for the
synthesis of LC- nanocomposite and investigation of the some
