We analyze a semidiscrete scheme for the Cahn-Hilliard equation in one space dimension, when the interface length parameter is equal to zero. We prove convergence of the scheme for a suitable class of initial data, and we identify the limit equation. We also characterize the long-time behavior of the limit solutions.
