The effect of a bulk triple point between phases α, β, and γ on the wetting, by films of β or γ, of an α|ω interface (between a wall ω and bulk α) is discussed phenomenologically. Various additional wetting and surface transitions are induced by the triple point and may be pinned by it, and a compound (β γ) film may appear. The results are relevant to recent adsorption experiments and simulations.
