Abstract The paper presents experimental results of the research of the dielectric constant and dielectric loss tangent of the seventh and eighth 4-nitrobenzylidene-4'-alkyloxyaniline homologues. Both compounds form a nematic mesophase. The dependences of dielectric parameters on temperature, frequency of a measuring electric field and the orienting effect of an external magnetic field are given. The results show that the dielectric anisotropy of nematics εα = ε|| - ε⊥ is positive and the value εα of the seventh homologue is significantly greater than the anisotropy of the eighth homologue. In the nematic mesophase the low-frequency dispersion of a parallel component of the dielectric parameters is observed.
