X-ray diffraction method has been used to study the molecular organization in 4-n-pentyl-4'-cyano-p-terphenyl doped with guest dye molecules. It has been found that the dye with strong polar end group affects significantly the monomer to dimer ratio in the nematic phase of the liquid crystal studied.
