Abstract: The topic of this thesis is the investigation of structure,order and dynamics in discotic mesogens by advancedsolid-state NMR spectroscopy. Most of the discotic mesogensunder investigation are hexa-peri-hexabenzocoronene (HBC)derivatives which are of particular interest for potentialdevice applications due to their high one-dimensional chargecarrier mobilities. The supramolecular stacking arrangement of the discoticcores was investigated by 2D 1H-1H double-quantum (DQ)methods, which were modified by incorporating the WATERGATEsuppression technique into the experiments in order toovercome severe phase problems arising from the strongsignal of the long alkyl sidechains. Molecular dynamics and sample orientation was probed throughthe generation of sideband patterns by reconversion rotorencoding in 2D recoupling experiments. These experimentswere extended by new recoupling schemes to enable thedistinction of motion and orientation effects. The solid-state NMR studies presented in this work aim tothe understanding of structure-property relationships in theinvestigated discotic materials, while the experimentsapplied to these materials include new recoupling schemeswhich make the desired information on molecular orientationand dynamics accessible without isotope labelling.
