Since our initial Thematic Series "Progress in liquid crystal chemistry" in 2009, the research field has further broadened and stretches currently from materials science, through energy conversion and storage, to life sciences. The review articles and original research papers of this second Thematic Series in the Beilstein Journal of Organic Chemistry, written by known experts of their field, cover diverse topics such as novel discotic and calamitic compounds, bent-core mesogens, amphiphiles, and liquid-crystalline nanoparticles. It is our goal to give the reader insight into both synthetic aspects of liquid-crystal chemistry as well as application-oriented properties, such as photoconductivity or chirality transfer, to name just a few selected examples.
