In this work we report preliminary results on the properties of a non-polar bicyclohexane nematic liquid crystal. Moreover, its binary mixtures both with a low viscosity phenylcyclohexane and with a normal polar nematic liquid have been investigated. The elastic, viscous and electro-optical properties of these compounds are presented. The non-polar compound, and its mixture with a low percentage of the well known liquid crystal MBBA, exhibit an electrohydrodynamic behaviour in which the conducting regime is absent, while the dielectric regime spreads to low frequencies. Additionally, at higher frequencies of the applied electric eld, a regime whose thresholds are linear in frequency is observed. On the other hand, the mixture formed by 50 wt% of the non-polar compound with MBBA exhibits at low frequencies the usual behaviour, followed at higher frequencies by the linear regime.
