Graphical abstract  



A combinatorial approach was developed for the rapid 
determination of thermochromic behavior of a large number of binary 
and ternary sterol based thermochromic liquid crystalline formulations. This approach 
allowed expedient examination of the thermochromic behavior for a large range of liquid crystal formulations. The accuracy of the rapid combinatorial technique was validated on selected thermochromic liquid crystal mixture compositions by comparing well thermochromic output with that observed using UV−vis spectroscopy on gram quantities of material.
