1 Equilibrium and Stability Phase Diagrams of Binary Systems Second law for any change in chemical states says: (d S) total > 0 (d G) T,P < 0 This leads to fundamental requirement for equilibrium The equilibrium state of a closed system is that state for which the total Gibbs energy is a minimum with respect to all possible changes at a given T and P . Mathematically this is: (d G) T,P = 0 this equation is necessary but not sufficient for chemical equilibrium

2 Criterion for Phase Separation This mixture with composition x 1 * will phase separate into two liquid phases, one with composition x 1 a and the other with x 1 b . The mathematical criterion for NO phase separation in a binary system at constant T and P is : 0 2 1 2 > ± ² ³ ´ µ dx RT G d mix const T,P Spinodal limit
