The possibility of enhancing forced and free convection heat transfer rates by inducing liquid-liquid phase separation of a two-component liquid system with a lower critical solution temperature (LCST) was demonstrated. The LCST system used was composed of water and triethyamine with a critical composition. Visualization of the phase separation on the surface of a hot vertical plate enables to associate the free-convection heat transfer augmentation to the observed flow phenomena.
