Composition gradients in miscible liquids can create volume forces resulting in various interfacial phenomena. Experimental observations of these phenomena are related to some difficulties because they are transient, sufficiently weak and can be hidden by gravity driven flows. As a consequence, the question about their existence and about adequate mathematical models is not yet completely elucidated. In this work we present some experimental evidences of interfacial phenomena in miscible liquids and numerical simulations of miscible drops and diffuse interfaces.
