Abstract

A sub-triple liquid is a metastable liquid whose temperature and pressure are both lower than its triple point values. The sub-triple state cannot be attained either isobarically or isothermally from the stable region without previous penetration into metastable regions. The implications of the existence of spinodal curve for supercooled liquids can be derived from thermodynamic reasoning: the existence of such a limit, however, cannot be proven thermodynamically. This paper will discuss the significance of the Maxwell construction for a supercooled liquid without a spinodal curve, as well as the consequences of the existence of this stability limit.
