New homologous series of Schiff’s base of 4-n-Alkoxy-2-hydroxy benzaldehyde (n = 2 to 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18) with 4-amino acetophenone and their Cu(II) metal complexes have been synthesized. The compounds were characterized using various spectroscopic techniques including FT-IR, 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR. Mesomorphic properties of these compounds have been investigated with polarizing optical microscope and differential scanning calorimeter. These compounds exhibit wide range SmA phase as confirmed by their typical optical texture under polarizing microscope.
