Abstract
Recently it has been discovered that some types of liquid crystals, which believed to be governed by ionic conduction, exhibit a very fast electronic conduction. Their charge carrier transport is characterized by high mobility over 10-2 cm2/Vs independent of electric field and temperature. Now, the liquid crystals are being recognized as a new class of organic semiconductors. In this article, a new aspect of liquid crystals as a self-organizing molecular semiconductor are reviewed, focused on their basic charge carrier transport properties and discussed in comparison with those of molecular crystals and amorphous materials. And it is concluded that the liquid crystal is promising as a quality organic semiconductor for the devices that require a high mobility.
