The structural and dynamic properties of two low-molecular weight glass-forming liquids, propylene carbonate (PC) and salol were studied using wide angle x-ray scattering and classical molecular dynamic simulations. The underlying structure of the liquid propylene carbonate and salol were investigated as a result of the observed scattering curves in three different regions with different temperature behavior. The molecular-dynamics simulations show an increased orientational correlation approaching the glass transition temperature. The changing pattern were observed as evidence for the occurrence of heterophases in liquid PC and salol.
