A unique metal-containing liquid crystal consisting of a novel gemini-like metallic macrodiscogen with copper-bis(β-diketonate)-based twin cores has been successfully synthesized. Scanning tunneling microscopy has been used to characterize the ideal square-planar conformation (see Figure). The low ionization potential and the reversible oxidation process values suggest a large capability for hole injection.
