Judicious tailoring of molecular shapes and interfaces in lanthanide complexes (see Figure) can produce rational control of the thermodynamic parameters responsible for the formation of thermotropic liquid-crystalline phases with predetermined macroscopic organizations. These complexes and their specific metal-centered luminescence can be exploited for probing phase transitions and microscopic environments in mesophases.
