The work carried out in this thesis concerns the understanding of the physical properties of mixtures of nanoparticles and hquid crystals. The nanoparticles that have been used are buckminsterfullerene, carbon nanotubes and surface functionalised gold nanoparticles. The main group of liquid crystals used were discotic liquid crystals, in particular the triphenylene derivative HAT6.
