The influence of multiwall carbon nanotube dispersion on viscoelastic properties of cholesteric liquid crystal (cholesteryl myristate) investigated in this work. Important viscoelastic data are analyzed : complex viscosity, dynamic elastic modulus and loss, their temperature dependence.

Keywords: multiwall carbon nanotubes, cholesteric liquid crystal, storage modulus, loss modulus, complex viscosity
