Abstract The molecular packing in the crystalline phase of 4-(ω-hydroxy)octyloxy-4'-cyanazobenzene is studied by X-ray-structural analysis method. It is shown, that determined influence on the molecular packing is putting up H-bond of compete intermolecular interactions. Mesophase properties of the compound are studied by polarization thermomicroscopy and differential scanning calorimetry methods. The enantiotropic nematic phase presence is established.
