We report measurements of time-of-flight charge carrier mobility and thermal optical polarized microscopy on a new class of hexagonal columnar (formula presented) liquid crystals (LC) self-organized from supramolecular cylinders self-assembled from acene functionalized dendrons. We discuss the temperature and electric field-independent high hole mobility of (formula presented) of fluorinated tapered first generation dendrons that contain pyrene and naphthalene groups in their core and self-assemble into supramolecular nanocylinders. The anomalous temperature behavior of the mobility is consistent with polaron transport mechanisms. Studies of time-of-flight transients, which reveal evidence for dynamic defects with lifetimes in the range of (formula presented) are presented as aspects of charge generation and recombination kinetics.
