It has previously been reported by Easwar et al. that the two phases of a critical mixture take an unexpectedly long time to mutually dissolve if the system is raised above its critical temperature (T>Tc) and strongly stirred. Further experiments have identified a trivial explanation for this effect. The system cools on mixing, and this can temporarily drive it back into the two-phase region (T<Tc). The experimental technique used here can possibly be exploited to measure the surface energy temporarily stored in a turbulently stirred two-phase system.
