The liquid nanosystems afforded by liquid crystals are examined from formation through to electrochemistry. These auto-assembling, lightweight, flexible and self-annealing systems are seen to offer a rich variety of electrochemical processes when doped with redox-active species, empowering their use as attractive frameworks in which to examine fundamental studies of restricted and viscous media, as well as for their exploitation for liquid nanotechnological application such as in sensors and biosensors, energy harvesting devices, and for electrosynthesis.
