    The design, synthesis and liquid-crystalline properties of a family of hybrid compounds which are built from rod-like (oligophenylenevinylene) and disc-like [poly(benzyl ether)] units are reported. All compounds form columnar phases within broad temperature ranges; the mesophases are stable even below room temperature. Weak photovoltaic effect was observed for the C60–OPV dyad. For...
