Dielectric properties of the mixture of two thioester compounds: 4-8-alkoxy-benzoate-thio-carboxyl S-4-pentyl-phenyl (8OS5), (s)-4-(1-methyl-heptyloxy)biphenyl-4-thio-carboksyl 4-9-alkil-phenyl (MHOBS9) are presented. The chiral compound exhibits nematic (N*) and ferroelectric smectic C* phase (SmC*). The achiral compound shows N, SmA and monotropic SmC and SmB phases. the mixture of both compounds of 0.5 molar fraction shows SmC* in the wider temperature range than pure MHOBS9. The mixture was studied using frequency domain dielectric spectroscopy. Dielectric measurements for the SmC* phase of the mixture revealed Goldstone mode at higher frequencies and Maxwell-Wagner relaxation at low frequencies.
