Phase transitions of different binary mixtures of a bent-core (10DClPBBC) and a rod-shaped (6OO8) liquid crystal were studied using differential scanning calorimetry. For the binary mixture with 50:50 weight ratio of bent-core and rod-shaped molecules, the nematic to smectic transition occurred below the temperature of 40°C and crystallization was shifted to sub-ambient temperature. It was found that crystallization was the phase transition with the lowest apparent activation energy.
