A rigid terpyridine ligand containing chiral alkyl chains has been synthesized, characterized and subsequently complexed with ruthenium(II) ions. The product was characterized by MALDI-TOF-MS, UV–vis and NMR. Circular dichroism showed the appearance of extended helical columnar aggregates. Chiral mesogenic terpyridine ligands have been prepared and complexed with ruthenium(II) ions, which resulted in the formation of extended helical columnar aggregates.
