A supramolecular mesophase was prepared from molecular recognition directed selfassembly of two complementary molecular components, namely 5-(4-dodecyloxybenzylidene)- 2,4,6-(1H,3H)-pyrimidinetrione and 4-amino-2,6-didodecylamino-1,3,5triazine. Di€ erential scanning calorimetry measurements indicate a mesophase having liquid crystalline properties. Infrared studies suggest that not only hydrogen bonds but also p-aromatic stacking and van der Waals interactions direct the formation of the mesophase.
