Jury comment: This image has been chosen because it shows a different "view" from the molecular organization of compounds leading to the liquid crystal state and close arrangement, then broadening the spectrum of self-assembly study techniques for mesomorphic molecules. This coupled with the aesthetic beauty and quality of photography.
