A thermodynamical inequality is obtained for mixtures of interacting continua; it represents the analogue of a corresponding inequality for single phase media contained in a paper of Green and Naghdi (1984) and is less restrictive than one proposed earlier (1978b). Also, the use of such inequalities in conjunction with the so-called reciprocal relations is briefly discussed.
