Summary Crystalline and liquid crystalline behavior of the mesogenic binary blends consisting of smectic and nematic liquid crystal polyesters were investigated by differential scanning calorimetry and by polarizing microscope. The blends did not form eutectic mixture and the homopolymers were partially miscible in the solid state. The liquid crystalline phase of the blend showed coexisting nematic and smectic phases at a certain composition.
