Metallomesogens containing paramagnetic transition metal ions are of interest because the orientation of these mesophases can be controlled by a magnetic field. The first paramagnetic Ni-containing liquid crystals (related to the non-mesogenic compound shown in the Figure) are reported. Their complicated temperature-dependent magnetic behavior is discussed and shown to reflect changes in the coordination core of nickel.
