The effect of pressure on the crystal-nematic and nematic-isotropic transition temperatures, T<SUB>CN</SUB> and T<SUB>NI</SUB>, was investigated for MBBA (n- (4-methoxybenzylidene) -4-n- butylaniline), EBBA (n- (4-ethoxybenzylidene) -4-n-butylaniline), and binary mixtures containing these compounds such as (MBBA+EBBA), and (MBBA, EBBA + C<SUB>6</SUB>H<SUB>6</SUB>, C<SUB>6</SUB>H<SUB>12</SUB>) at temperatures from 263 to 363 K and pressures up to 30 MPa. The measurements were performed using a high-pressure optical vessel designed for direct visual observation with the aid of a video microscope, and a three-terminal cylindrical capacitor for dielectric study.
