We present a phase condition under which there is no suitable multiplier for a given continuous-time plant. The condition can be derived from either the duality approach or from the frequency interval approach. The condition has a simple graphical interpretation, can be tested in a numerically efficient manner and may be applied systematically. Numerical examples show significant improvement over existing results in the literature. The condition is used to demonstrate a third order system with delay that is a counterexample to the Kalman Conjecture.
