Summary:The term 'chemical immiscibility' is unambiguously redefined as a multiphase multi-component equilibrium. The consequences of this definition are directly derived from the phase rule and concern the possible equations that relate the various parameters (T, P, volumes, compositions) to each other. These equations already put constraints on the topology of the phase equilibria in fluid systems. A particular expression of the phase rule is proposed, which takes into account the multiphase-constant bulk volume-constant bulk composition constraints in fluid inclusions. The consequences of such an expression are of major importance in fluid-inclusion studies. The phase relations of some simple systems that approximate to the natural complex fluids are detailed. The effects of these topologies and of the supplementary constraints (constant bulk composition and constant bulk volume) assumed for fluid inclusions (isopleth - isochoric systems) are discussed.
