In recent years several nonequilibrium thermodynamic frameworks have been developed capable of describing the dynamics of multiphase systems with complex microstructured interfaces. In this paper we present an overview of these frameworks. We will discuss interfacial dynamics in the context of the classical irreversible thermodynamics, extended irreversible thermodynamics, extended rational thermodynamics, and GENERIC framework, and compare the advantages and disadvantages of these frameworks.
