Abstract The paper presents the research on the phthalocyanine erbium complex and its metal-free analogue containing on the periphery the 1-benzotriazole and 1,6-disulfo-2-naphthol fragments. These compounds are promising materials for nanotechnology. Their design and the forecast of possibility to display mesomorphic state are made. It is found that they are able to form columnar mesomorphism. To verify the results of the forecast, tetra-4-(1-benzotriazolyl)tetra-5-(1,6-disulfo- 2-naphthoxy)phthalocyanine erbium complex was synthesized by metallization of the corresponding metal-free phthalocyanine derivative. Mesomorphism of the obtained compounds was studied by the polarizing optical microscopy. Spectral properties were also investigated.
