Commentary on "Diffusion of Carbon in Austenite with a Discontinuity in Composition"

H. K. D. H. Bhadeshia

Consider an allotropic transition between two phases in a pure substance. The phases are said to be in equilibrium when they have identical free energies. Pure ice and water coexist at precisely 273.15 K (0 °C) and 1 atm of pressure. When this system consists of a mixture of common salt and H2O, the ice and water become solid and liquid solutions, respectively, but can still coexist in equilibrium, albeit under different circumstances...........
