Abstract

original image

Assemblies of planar ions: Anion complexes of appropriately designed pyrrole-based π-conjugated molecules provided liquid crystalline materials by combination with a planar cation based on charge-by-charge and charge-segregated assemblies (see figure). The series of charge-based assemblies exhibited well-balanced ambipolar charge carrier transport behavior with relatively high mobilities.
