A stabilization of the liquid-crystalline mesophase and thus an enlarged temperature range of the mesogenic phase is achieved by adding perfluorotriphenylene to a chiral liquid-crystalline triphenylene. This mesophase is based on 1:1 perfluoroarene-arene interactions (see picture). In a polymer with triphenylenes as mesogens in the side chains, the addition of perfluorotriphenylene led to crystallization.
