Liquid crystalline composites on the basis of lyotropic liquid crystals were fabricated and studied. The composite containing polymer network was obtained on the basis of commercial mixture NOA-65 and the disulphoindantrone – water lyotropic liquid crystal. The composite mixture polymerization was made by means of UV radiation. The composite on the basis of the linear alkylmethacrylat-containing copolymer was obtained in combination with the benzopurpurin – water lyotropic liquid crystal by means of solvent evaporation. The optimal conditions for the composites fabrication as well as their texture were investigated.

Keywords: liquid crystals, composites, textures, UV polymerization
