IRG3 Osuji highlight figure

The images show (CW, from top left) a polarized optical micrograph of a nematic LC containing MoS2, a photograph showing the presence of exfoliated MoS2 in dichlorobenzene (DCB) containing the mesogen RM105, but absence in DCB without the mesogen; time-redolved UV-VIS absorption spectra showing the characteristic absorption peaks of semiconducting single/few-layer MoS2, and a schematic showing the exfoliation and dispersion of MoS2 by RM105.
