We propose a method for stabilizing and modifying the dispersed phase of a liquid crystal-in-water (LC/water) emulsion using the sequential adsorption of polyelectrolytes and magnetite nanoparticles, which leads to the formation of LC-filled nanocomposite microcapsules. The obtained samples were studied by optical microscopy and Raman spectroscopy. It is established that the LC-filled nanocomposite microcapsules can move under the action of an external magnetic field.
