Abstract: We study the role played by neutrino trapping on the hadron star (HS) to quark star (QS) conversion mechanism proposed recently by Berezhiani and collaborators. We find that the nucleation of quark matter (QM) drops inside hadron matter (HM), and therefore the conversion of a HS into a QS is strongly inhibited by the presence of neutrinos.
