We give an analysis of the Cahn-Hilliard equation with a general potential, which admits a one-dimensional kink solution. We investigate the stability of this equilibrium solution to small perpendicular perturbations of variable wave numberic. We develop a perturbation theory for small and large k and apply the general results to two commonly used forms for the potential. We go on and use a Pade approximant to describe the full dispersion relation, and for the particular potentials it is shown that the kink solution is stable for all k.
