Folded discotic dimers

Author affiliations


We report the synthesis and properties of a dibenzophenazine discotic dimer, which was found to adopt a folded conformation in solution. This stable π-stacked structure persists at elevated temperatures and in all solvents examined. Folding allows the dimer to assemble into a columnar liquid crystal phase, despite its short linking group.
