Transition temperatures as a function of the concentration of CP7B in the CCN-47/CP7B binary mixture system. Iso and N stand for isotropic and nematic phases, respectively. The area between triangular and circular symbols represents bistable regime, i.e., both planar and homeotropic alignments are stable.
