Abstract The influence of aromatic non-mesogenic addidives: p-nitroaniline and azobenzene on the mesomorphic, optical, dielectric and orientational properties of 4-(trans-4'-pentylcyclohexyl)benzonitrile and 4-hexyloxy-4'-cyanobiphenyl was studied.
It was shown that addition of polar p-nitroaniline results in dielectric anizotropy rise. A more effective arrangement of p-nitroaniline in liquid crystal matrices is caused by mesogen–non-mesogen H-complex formation.
