A new series of chiral Schiff's bases containing 2-hydroxybenzilideneaniline moieties and their copper complexes were synthesized and studied by differential scanning calorimetry, polarized optical microscopy, X-ray diffraction and EPR measurement. The results show that most of the Schiff's bases and only two of the copper complexes exhibited chiral smectic liquid crystal phases.
