Two 2D pi-extended hexaazatriphenylene (HAT) derivatives with different alkyl chain peripheries are synthesized and electrochemically characterized showing their good electron acceptor ability. We highlight the influence of the peripheral alkyl chains in the liquid crystal properties of both HAT derivatives.
