A hybrid material with high electronic conduction...

has been fabricated by photo-polymerization of the liquid crystalline semiconductor 2-(4’-octylphenyl)-6-dodecyloxynaphthalene (8-PNP-O12) and a crosslinked monomer. The charge-transport properties of a polymer network stabilize the liquid crystalline system through different phases (isotropic, smectic A, and smectic B phase). (J. Hanna et al., July 4, Adv.
