        Description    

          Abstract The synthesis and study of the liquid crystalline,       photophysical, and aggregation
          behavior of novel octupolar oxadiazole derivatives are       reported. These molecules formed
          columnar mesophases at elevated temperatures which       transformed into a glassy state at
          ambient temperatures wherein the columnar order was retained.       Their spontaneous
          concentration dependent hierarchical self-assembly from       spheres to fibrous gels has been
          investigated using TEM, SEM, and XRD. Retention of the       hexagonal columnar (Col h) ...
