Abstract The method of inverse gas chromatography was used to study the thermodynamic characteristics of the sorption redistribution of hydrocarbons (n-alkanes С10–С14, terpenes С10Н16, xylene isomers) and alcohols (alkanols and izo-alkanols С4–С7) in the gas – supramolecular nematic liquid crystal 4-(2-hydroxyethoxy)-4'-cyanoazoxybenzene (HEOCAB) system. It was established that the synthesized HEOCAB is a mixture of isomers with different melting points. Low-temperature mixed nematic phase contains solid particles inclusions in the range 113–135 °C and possesses a high selectivity towards para- and meta-xylene (αp/m = 1,164, 115 °C). In the high-homogeneous nematic phase (135–175 °C) the values of αp/m decrease sharply due to the reduced degree of association of the mesogenic molecules and fall of the order parameter.
