New organic compounds of positive dielectric anisotropy giving nematic liquid crystals at room temperature, either as the pure compounds or in admixture, are described. These materials are of improved stability, and function well in electro-optical devices based on the twisted-nematic or cholesteric-nematic phase-change effects.
