We use dissipative particle dynamics (DPD) simulations to explore the nature of triblock liquid crystalline bolaamphiphiles. We show that the simulations can reproduce the relationships, previously established experimentally, between the molecular dimensions and the phase behaviour. In contrast to other recent simulation studies of bolaamphiphiles, we observe a columnar phase with a pentagonal cross section.
