A new bolaamphiphile comprising a 5,5'''''-diphenyl-sexithiophene core with glycerol groups at each end and four lateral decyl chains was synthesized, which self-assembles into a liquid crystalline phase representing a nanoscale honeycomb composed of quasi-infinite triangular cylinders of π-conjugated sexithiophenes.
