Exhaustive alkylation of hexahydroxytriphenylene results in production of significant quantities of a side product bearing one additional alkyl chain originating from C-alkylation. A series of these novel materials have been isolated and characterised to gain further insight on factors controlling mesophase formation in triphenylene discotics.
