Abstract Calculation and analysis of molecular parameters (МР) phthalocyanine metallocomlexes (Сu, Cd, Co, La, Lu, Ru and Y), including crown ether fragments was carried out. It is established, that the given complexes are inclined to mesomorphism inherent to disc-like mesogenes.
Three (Сu, Cd and Co) from seven metallocomplexes are synthesized and thermotropic mesomorphism of individual compounds and their mixes with chiral nematic cholesterol diphenylate has been investigated. It was revealed, that copper and cobalt phthalocyanines possess latent mesomorphism. Convergence of prognostication results with experimental data amount to 83 %.
