Experiments were performed to investigate the evolution of structure and morphology of the network in polymer-stabilised liquid crystals. In situ optical microscopy revealed that the morphology was significantly altered by extraction of the LC host, while scanning electron microscopy showed that the network morphology was also dependent on the polymerisation conditions and closely related to the depletion of monomer, as monitored by high performance liquid chromatography. Transmission electron microscopy allowed observation of internal structure, resolving microstructure on the order of 0. 1 μm.
