Abstract: In an attempt to synthesise liquid-crystalline rare-earth complexes of some habbe-type ligands (habbe = N-(2-{( 2E)-2-[2-hydroxy-4-(alkoxy) benzylidene] hydrazino}-2-oxoethyl) benzamide), decomposition of these ligands was observed. A synthetic pathway is proposed, in which the rare-earth ion promotes the decomposition of the habbe ligand into a symmetrical azine, which shows mesomorphism. The thermal behaviour of four azines obtained in this way was studied by hot-stage polarizing optical microscopy, differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and high-temperature powder diffraction methods and shows that all four compounds are liquid-crystalline. The crystal structure of one of the azines has been determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction and shows an elongated orientation of the molecules and a layered crystal packing. Both starting and end products were further characterized by 1H-NMR.
