The rheological characteristics of viscous lubricants with liquid crystal additives – esters of cholesterol fatty acids were studied by the rotation viscosimetry method using «cone – plane» system equipment. The type of compound melt current was determined and the analysis of the dependence of sample current characteristics from compound molecule structure was carried out.

Keywords: liquid crystal additives, cholesterol fatty acids, viscous lubricants
