Abstract The influence of polar aromatic non-mesogenic addidives 4-hydroxy-4'-cyano-biphenile, 4-(6- hydroxyhexyloxy)benzonitrile on the mesomorphic, dielectric and orientational properties of 4-(trans-4'-pentylcyclohexyl)benzonitrile(5PCH) and 4-pentyloxy-4'-cyanobiphenyl (5OCB) was studied. It was shown that addition of polar non-mesomorphic compounds results in dielectric anizotropy rise. More effective arrangement of 4-hydroxy-4'-cyanobiphenile connected with H-complex formation was established.
