Liquid crystalline ,'-disubstituted pentathiophene was aligned using high magnetic fields (>5 T) resulting in macroscopically oriented samples. The pentathiophene crystallites were found to be aligned perpendicular to the magnetic field direction, as is evidenced by microscopy images. The samples are stable at room temperature and will be used for further investigations such as the determination of the (anisotropic) mobility and the polarization of the light emission.
