Nuclear matter equations of state based on Skyrme, Myers-Swiatecki and Tondeur interactions are written as polynomials of the cubic root of density, with coefficients that are functions of the relative neutron excess $\delta$. In the extrapolation toward states far away from the standard one, it is shown that the asymmetry dependence of the critical point ( $\rho_{\rm c}, \delta_{\rm c}$) depends on the model used. However, when the equations of state are fitted to the same standard state, the value of $\delta_{\rm c}$ is almost the same in Skyrme and in Myers-Swiatecki interactions, while is much lower in Tondeur interaction. Furthermore, $\delta_{\rm c}$ does not depend sensitively on the choice of the parameter $\gamma$ in Skyrme interaction.
