The novel triphenylene-Bodipy derivatives 6 and 7 based on 1,3,5-triazine core were designed and synthesised by introducing BODIPY unit and triphenylene units sequentially onto cyanuric chloride. The Bodipy derivative 6 with one triphenylene unit was a nematic liquid crystal but the derivative 7 with two triphenylene units was a hexagonal columnar liquid crystal. The investigation on photophysical properties suggested that both of them exhibited excellent fluorescence with high fluorescence
