In Situ Synthesis and Assembly of Gold Nanoparticles Embedded in
Glass-Forming Liquid Crystals**

It is of tremendous interest to use nanoparticles (NPs) as
building blocks for the fabrication of multifunctional meso-
scale assemblies by organizing them into two- and three-
dimensional structures with precise size and shape control for
applications based on their collective properties.[1,2]
Several
ways have been reported to create ordered assemblies of NPs
by using templates that have sites with specific binding to
NPs,[3]
for example, self-assembled monolayers,[4]
surface-
modified polymers,[5]
electrophoretic assembly onto suitable
substrates,[6]
