In this work, we present a new approach for utilization of eutectic mixtures of metallomesogens (MOM) as potential materials in electro optical devices. We studied the phase diagrams of blends of synthesized rod-like Palladium (Pd) alkyl/alkoxy-azobenzene complexes with their parent ligands and commercial nematic liquid crystal mixtures. The results indicate complete mesgenic miscibility and eutectic points of MOM-ligand mixtures. In addition, the MOM-ligand eutectic mixture also exhibited a complete nematic miscibility with three commercial liquid crystals TN10427, TNO623 and E43 that qualify them model materials in the guest-host electro-optical devices.
