Purchase phase transitions in polymers the role of metastable states 1st edition print book e book isbn 9780444519115 9780080558202. A classical metastable state possesses a local free energy minimum at infinite sizes but not a global one this concept is phase size independent we have studied a number of experimental results . The role of metastability in polymer phase transitions author links open overlay panel andrew keller a stephen zd cheng b show more of special interest is the role of metastability in phase and phase transition behaviours a classical metastable state possesses a local free energy minimum but it is not at the global stable equilibrium . The metastable state can be recognized for example in the condensation of a gaseous phase or evaporation of a liquid phase between the binodal and spinodal lines where one may have a superheated liquid phase or an undercooled vapor phase
