In this letter we determine the principal and main polarizabilities of the nematic liquid crystals PCH5, PCH7 and 5OCB. The polarizabilities are calculated from the terahertz refractive indices using Vuks' approximation. 5OCB, which has two phenyl rings in its core, shows the highest terahertz anisotropy.
