Recent literature on Bi-Ce, Bi-Er, C-Ce, C-La, C-Pr, Cd-I, Cr-Cu, Cu-Er, Er-Sb, F-Sm, F-Yb, and Fe-Gd phase diagrams is reviewed in this article in order to update the 1990 compilation Binary Alloy Phase Diagrams, 2nd edition, by T.B. Massalski, et al. For some systems reaction tables and crystal structure data have been included, as well. Diagrams have been checked for consistency with rules for phase diagram construction and modified when necessary. In addition, diagrams needing more work have been identified. © 2013 ASM International.


Recent literature on Cd-Se, Cu-Hg, Cu-Ho, Eu-Mg, H-Sr, Hf-Si, La-Mn, Mn-Nd, Nb-Y, Ni-Y, Pb-Se, and Sc-Sr phase diagrams is reviewed in this article in order to update the 1990 compilation Binary Alloy Phase Diagrams, 2nd edition, by T.B.

Thermodynamic consistency of the new phase diagrams was checked based on phase rules and the diagrams were modified if necessary. The assessed phase diagram of and the calculated phase diagram of were based on the same experimental data and they agreed well. It must be noted that the gas phase may be involved around the peak of the miscibility gap because the G/G+L boundary estimated from the boiling points of Ag and Ni appears to interfere with the miscibility gap curve. Accordingly, a newer phase diagram is not always a better diagram, especially when there is too little published data on a system. For convenience, reaction tables and crystal structure data have been added when new information was available.

Recent information on the binary phase diagrams for the Al-Bi, Al-Dy, Al-Gd, Al-Tb, C-Mn, Co-Ga, Cr-Hf, Cr-Na, Er-H, Er-Zr, H-Zr, and Ni-Pb systems that have become available after 1990 was reviewed. The criteria for selecting such information include systems for which no phase diagram was given, complete diagrams that are substantially different from the earlier version, and partial diagrams that alter or clarify the earlier version. Thermodynamic consistency of the new phase diagrams was checked based on phase rules and the diagrams were modified if necessary. However, each updated phase diagram has not gone through the ordinary evaluation process. Accordingly, a newer phase diagram is not always a better diagram, especially when there is too little published data on a system. For convenience, reaction tables and crystal structure data have been added when new information was available.


A review of binary phase diagrams of Ag-Sn, Al-Pd, Ba-Gd, Ba-Pr, Cu-P, Dy-Ni, Ga-Mn, Gd-Sb, Gd-Zr, Ho-Te, Lu-Sb, and Mn-Nb, is discussed. The Ag-Sn phase diagram was redrawn from Kar, who reviewed literature data on this system published before 1984. The Ag-Sn phase diagram calculated represents the experimental data most successfully. The Al-Pd phase diagram from Mas was redrawn, which reviewed literature data on this system published before 1982. The Ba-Gd phase diagram was calculated by [2008Vos] using a regular solution model. The complete Ba-Pr phase diagram was calculated by [2008Vos] using a regular solution model. The Dy-Ni phase diagram in [1990Mas] was drawn by [1991Pan] based on the experimental data reported by Che. In the GdSb2 phase diagram, Gd16Sb39 liquidus would be very flat at the congruent melting point when extended into the metastable state in comparison with those of other compounds.


Hiroaki Okamoto shared his views on Supplemental Literature Review of Binary Phase Diagrams of Ag-Nd, Ag-Zr, Al-Nb, B-Re, B-Si, In-Pt, Ir-Y, Na-Si, Na-Zn, Nb-P, Nd-Pt, and Th-Zr. The Ag-Nd system was reviewed and the assessed phase diagram was constructed based on experimental data reported, while the assessed phase diagram was accepted. This system was thermodynamically analyzed independently and the result agreed with the experimental data. The Ag-Zr phase diagram was adopted from the assessment carried out by a team of researchers. The phase diagram was primarily based on thermal and metallographic data obtained by another team of researchers.
