Abstract The article introduces the result of the integrated theoretical investigation of the liquid-crystalline adducts of lanthanides by the methods of molecular simulation. The correla-tion between the geometrical parameters and liquid-crystalline properties, the influence of the ionic radius and alkyl substituents on the anisometry of the molecules were investigated. The anisometry values, within which the liquid-crystalline phase exists, were established to be 2,5÷3,5.
