Paired states, trions and quarteting states in one-dimensional attractive fermions are investigated via exact Bethe ansatz calculations. In particular, quantum phase transitions are identified and calculated from the quarteting phase into normal Fermi liquid, trionic states and spin-2 paired states which belong to the universality class of linear field-dependent magnetization in the vicinity of critical points. Moreover, unified exact results for the ground-state energy, chemical potentials and complete phase diagrams for isospin S = 1/2, 1, 3/2 attractive fermions with external fields are presented. Also identified are the magnetization plateaux of and , where Ms is the magnetization saturation value. The universality of finite-size corrections and collective dispersion relations provides a further test ground for low-energy effective field theory.
