Scholarcy highlights

  • Discotic molecules typically comprising a rigid aromatic core and flexible peripheral chains have been attracting growing interest because of their fundamental importance as model systems for the study of charge and energy transport and due to the possibilities of their application in organic electronic devices
  • Variation of the peripheral flexible chains and of the aromatic core is decisive for the tuning of self-assembly in solution and in bulk
  • Supramolecular organization of discotic molecules can be effectively controlled by the choice of the processing methods
