Abstract

The triphenylene core provides a versatile platform from which discotic liquid crystals can be constructed. Synthetic advances permit the effect that substantial or subtle variation on structure has on mesophase formation. Through comparison of many derivatives, from our studies and others, it appears that the discotic core should be viewed as the triphenylene unit plus the attached polarizable substituents. Disruption of these extended cores discourages mesophase formation.
