This study describes the molecular dynamics (MD) simulations of the 4-n-alkyl-4'-cyanobiphenyl (nCB, n=5-9) liquid crystal homologous series at a selected temperature in the nematic phase. The order parameters and the biaxialities for five mesogens were found to be reasonable agreement with experiments. The orientational distributions of C-C bonds in alkyl chain of nCB were calculated and given for 6CB and 7CB. The odd-even effect was also discussed.
