Ultrasonic velocity measurements are carried out on four nOm compounds viz., N-(p-n-methoxy and ethoxy benzylidene)-p-n-dodecyl and tetradecyl anilines, 1O.12, 1O.14, 2O.12 and 2O.14. The first three compounds exhibit mono variant nematic phase while the last compound exhibits nematic and smectic-A phases with variable thermal ranges. The temperature dependence of sound velocity, U shows minima at the isotropic-nematic and nematic-smectic-A transitions. In conjunction with the density data of these compounds, the thermo acoustic parameters such as adiabatic compressibility (βad), the molar sound velocity (Rao’s number) (Rn), molar compressibility (W), molecular free length (Lf) and available volume (Va) are estimated. In addition the intermolecular free length (Lf) is estimated in three different ways employing density and ultrasonic velocity data. The results are compared with the data available in literature of other compounds.
