We present an analysis framed in the general context of two-component fermionic systems subjected to pairing correlations. The study is conducted for unstable asymmetric nuclear matter at low temperature, along the clusterization process driven by spinodal instabilities. It is shown that, especially around the transition temperature from the superfluid to the normal phase, pairing correlations may have non-negligible effects on the isotopic features of the clusterized low-density matter, which could be of interest also in the astrophysical context.
