This Ph.D. thesis investigates the influence of structural modifications on the charge transport properties of self-assembling discotic liquid crystalline materials. The mobility of the charge carriers has been probed with the electrodeless pulse-radiolysis time-resolved microwave conductivity (PR-TRMC) technique. Contents include: Charge Migration in Molecular Aggregates. The PR-TRMC Technique. Triphenylenes. Comparison of PR-TRMC and TOF Mobilities. Peri-Hexabenzocoronenes. Phthalocyanines. Imido-Containing Aromatic Compounds.
