The design and synthesis of a molecule formed from a contiguous lemniscular, figure-of-eight π-system is reported herein. Two homochiral helicenes are linked via the formation of two azine motifs leading to a molecule capable of efficient aggregation, demonstrated by concentration-dependent chiroptical studies and powder X-ray diffraction experiments which support the formation of a smectic liquid crystal phase. The lemniscate discussed in this report is found to produce second harmonic emission.
