Thermal stabilization of phase separation.

Snapshots of a single leaflet from simulations of systems with high concentration of benzene or cyclohexane, and with no solute, at 325 K. Colors are the same as in Fig. 1. Bottom right: DLiPC-DPPC contact fraction as a function of temperature from simulations without solutes and with high concentration of solutes. Thermal stabilization of phase separation is evident for fullerene, benzene, and polystyrene.
