Paper Title:
MoO3-x Nanowires as Inorganic Components of Liquid Crystalline Elastomer Composites
  Abstract

MoO3-x nanowires belong to photocromic materials and are promising candidates for lithium intercalation, hydrogen sensing, and smart windows. We report on a successful preparation of liquid single crystal elastomers (LSCE) containing MoO3-x nanowires, mostly the conductive Mo5O14 phase. Preparation and basic chemical and physical properties of these materials are discussed in view of the potentiality of these composites as actuators. The particular combination of molybdenum based nanowires and LSCE enables functionalization of liquid single crystal elastomers preventing the pristine mechanical and optical properties of the host matrix.
