Abstract: The synthesis and thermal behaviour of liquid-crystalline lanthanide complexes with Schiff base ligands are described. The stoichiometry of the rare-earth complexes is [Ln(LH)L-2(NO3)], where Ln = La(III), Nd(III), Pr(III), Eu(III). Gd(III). Ho(III), Er(III), and LH is the Schiff base 4-({3-Hydroxy-4-[(octadecylimino)methyl]phenoxy}carbonyl)phenyl 4-(hexyloxy)benzoate. The ligand displays a smectic C (SmC) and a nematic (N) phase. In the metal complexes, the nematic phase is suppressed and only a smectic C phase is present.
