Tetracyanoanthraquinodimethane (TCAQ) derivatives having three alkoxy chains at their extremities self-assemble to form both columnar liquid crystals and fibrous aggregates through intermolecular dipole-dipole interactions. The TCAQ derivatives are redox-active, and they exhibit responses in electrochromism in the reductive potential region.
