Mesomorphic lanthanide(III) complexes of salicylaidimine ligands have been synthesised. The effect upon the mesomorphic behaviour is discussed with variation of the counter-anion, number of alkoxy chains and the nature of the ligand framework. Complexes displaying either smectic or columnar mesophases have been realised.
