Abstract: By functionalizing the phthalocyanine Pc ring with long aliphatic chains, liquid-crystalline compounds can be obtained. In order to investigate the influence of chain length on mesophase behaviour, we prepared a series of homologous peripherally octa-alkoxy substituted phthalocyanines. The alkoxy chain length was varied from CH O to C H O. Trivalent lanthanide ions form with 3 2 0 4 1 phthalocyanine ligand complexes of the type Pc Ln, where the lanthanide ion is sandwiched between two phthalocyanine rings. Hit…
