Résumé: Blends composed of isotropic linear poly (n-butylacrylate) of molecular weight Mw = 112,000 g mol−1 and the commercial four-component nematic low molecular weight liquid crystal (LC) mixture E7 exhibit a strong shift of the single nematic–isotropic transition temperature TNI compared to that of the pure LCs, which was evidenced by using two complementary experimental techniques: differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and high-performance liquid chromatography. The first one provides direct information about phase behaviour and variation of TNI of the polymer/LC blends, whereas the second one consists of analysing qualitatively and quantitatively the composition of millimetre-sized segregated LC domains in the two-phase region of the phase diagram. In order to understand the origin of the unusual phase behaviour, several LC blends were prepared by modifying the concentration of the four single LC components that are present in the eutectic E7 mixture, following the results from the previous chromatographic analysis. These model blends were investigated by DSC measurements, showing that the variation, particularly of the terphenyl LC compound concentration, plays a determining role for the phase behaviour of the LC mixture and the shift of TNI.
