The synthesis, electrochemistry and mesogenic properties of novel anthraquinolyl-triphenylenes are described. 1H NMR, UV-vis, solution electrochemistry and molecular modelling studies indicate that an intermolecular charge-transfer interaction occurs between the anthraquinone moiety and the triphenylene nucleus.
