Discotic liquid crystals have emerged as very attractive organic semiconductors due to their high degree of ordering and self-healing capacity. Quantum-chemical calculations that describe the main parameters governing the charge-transfer processes in these systems at the molecular level are reported. The concepts are illustrated by considering columns made of triphenylene molecules and derivatives.
