A straightforward synthesis of triphenylene-perylene-triphenylene triad structures has been achieved by using versatile triphenylene intermediates bearing a single oxyalkyl amine side chain. Among these, PBITP10 showed a stable columnar mesophase implying favorably matched core-core separations in the structure. Importantly, the triad can be used as a vehicle for doping columnar triphenylene matrices with functional but incompatible perylene units and a mixture of hexahexyloxytriphenylene matrix doped with 0.1% PBITP10 is homogeneous and liquid crystalline.
