The rotational barriers of p-azoxy-anisole and dibutyl-phenyl-benzoyloxy-benzoates nematic liquid crystal molecules were calculated by the PCILO and CNDO/2 quantum chemical methods. It was found that motion in the side group is hindered to a given extent. According to chemical evidence the central part of the molecules is supposed to be completely rigid.
