Maximum number of mutually immiscible liquid phases

  1. Jan 13, 2010 #1
    Hi All
    When mixing water and oil, one produces an immiscible system of two liquid phases. Some cosmetic products for women offer three immiscible liquids, producing three liquid phases. What is in nature the maximum number of mutually immiscible liquids (that can be all put together with no chemical reaction between them) ?

    I am not sure I could express myself clearly. My question is the following:

    How many different liquid species there exist that form a system with maximum number of immiscible phases.
