Overstable solutions of the thermosolutal Rayleigh‐Jeffreys' problem can occur for concentration gradients in liquids which are so small that they could be generated by the Soret effect, even in nominally pure liquids.

We shall neglect the inverse Dufour effect‐this is a justifiable approximation in liquids though not in gases, see for example Chap. 11 of Non‐Equilibrium Thermodynamics by S. R. De Groot and P. Mazur (North‐Holland Publishing Co., Amsterdam, 1962).
