The compound cholesteryl benzoate is a rod-like molecule that undergoes a phase change from the solid to the liq- uid crystal phase at 145.5 °C. When cholesteryl benzoate is mixed with cholesteryl oleyl carbonate, a molecule with a curved shape, the temperature of the solid to liquid crys- tal transition changes. Predict if the transition temperature increases or decreases and explain your reasoning.
