CNPs can be fragmentized into smaller particles by lipases in the intestine but can still hold drugs in the lipid bilayer and avoid their precipitation in GI fluids by means of their lyotropic

liquid crystals by electroless deposition: the effect of reducing agents on the ordering of mesostructure," Journal of Materials Chemistry, 15(20): 1987-1994 (2005).
The 13 contributions present molecular field analyses of biaxial phase diagrams, order parameters, the Landau theory of nematic phases, continuum theory, lyotropic
biaxial nematics, colloidal systems, and molecular design strategies for low molar mass thermotropic biaxial nematics.

In general, liquid crystalline polymers (LCPs) can be classified as thermotropic liquid crystal polymer (TLCP) and lyotropic
Water/oil emulsions, emulsifier properties, and lyotropic
liquid crystals are covered together.
Additionally, CNCs have a rigid rod-like nature in solution and surface charge resulting in lyotropic
liquid crystalline behavior when they are dispersed in polar solvents.
Structures of greater size are formed in lyotropic
systems, where the ratio may exceed 15 .
Murugesan has extensively researched synthesis, characterization, modifications and improvements of polymers, lyotropic
liquid crystalline behaviors of synthesized polyamides and Solgel synthesis of various inorganic particles in poly(dimethyl siloxane) networks (PDMS).

liquid crystalline phases formed from glycerate surfactants as sustained release drug delivery systems.
Besides the methods mentioned above, the templating synthesis using lyotropic
liquid crystals (LLC), common biomimetic systems, is useful in fabricating nanomaterials (Zhao et al.
