Abstract. We prove that any global bounded solution of a phase field model with memory terms tends to a single equilibrium state for large times. Because of the memory effects, the energy is not a Lyapunov function for the problem and the set of equilibria may contain a nontrivial continuum of stationary states. The method we develop is applicable to a more general class of equations containing memory terms.
