We investigate an asymmetric nuclear matter consisting of protons and neutrons with spin degrees of freedom (σ = ↑, ↓). By generalizing the Nozières and Schmitt-Rink theory for two-component Fermi gases to the four-component case, we analyze the critical temperature T c of the superfluid phase transition. Although the pure neutron matter exhibits the dineutron condensation in the low-density region, the superfluid instability toward the deuteron condensation is found to take place as the proton fraction increases. We clarify the mechanism of the competition between the deuteron condensation and dineutron condensation. Our results would serve for understanding the properties of asymmetric nuclear matter realized in the interior of neutron stars.
