This study reports the investigation of three binary mixtures represented by acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) with its most important
degradation product, salicylic acid (SA), and two of the most commonly used excipients (polyethylene glycol 4000 (PEG-4000)
and d-mannitol (MA)). The liquidus and solidus equilibrium temperatures determined by DSC for pure components and solid binary
mixtures at a fixed composition (mass fraction of ASA, w) were used to construct the corresponding solid–liquid phase diagrams. On the basis of the DSC results, the binary mixtures
ASA/SA and ASA/PEG exhibit eutectic behavior (Teu = 155.0 ± 0.5 °C, weu = 0.55 ± 0.02 and Teu = 53.3 ± 0.5 °C, weu = 0.32
), respectively), while the binary mixture ASA/MA revealed the presence of a monotectic with a mean melting temperature of
162.2 °C in the range 0.2 < w1 < 0.8. The composition of the two eutectics formed was confirmed by the related Tamman triangles. Finally, the liquidus curves
of ASA/SA and ASA/PEG mixtures were also successfully predicted providing suitable polynomial (second-order) fitting equations.

investigation is focused on the area close to the monovariant line in the phasediagram of Sn–Zn–Al ternary system ( Fig. 1 ). As this region of the Sn–Zn–Al phasediagram still deserves a lot of attention [ 3 – 11 ], the temperatures of phase transitions were
The stearic acid-urea binary system exhibits an unusual phase diagram, which, on the one hand, indicates an incongruently
melting inclusion compound and on the other hand a miscibility gap in the liquid phases. The peritectic point lies near the
melting point of urea and the unstable congruent melting point of the inclusion compound coincides with the melting point
of urea. In addition to the processing of the phase diagram, the pure inclusion compound was prepared and its DSC curve, FTIR
spectrum and X-ray diffractogram were recorded.

Phase diagram for the system CuBr–LiBr was determined by differential scanning calorimetry and X-ray powder diffraction. The
system exhibits a significant solid solubility of the components, especially LiBr in the respective polymorphic modifications
of CuBr. Another feature of the system CuBr–LiBr is the occurrence of five invariant three-phase equilibria, which have been
assigned to one eutectic (684 K), one peritectoid (668 K), and three eutectoids (679, 645, and 521 K). From the experimental
results, formation of a compound LiCuBr2, at 521 K is discerned.

Perhydrotriphenylene (PHTP) forms channel-like adducts with molecules of different size and molecular weight. In the crystal structure of the adduct the included long sequences of molecules are separated from each other by the channel walls. The optical properties of the included molecules differ from those of the bulk molecules. The phase diagram of mixtures of PHTP and trans stylbene and 4H-cyclopenta [2,1-b∶3,4-b′] dithiophene (CPDT) were determined by DSC experiments. Ideality in the liquid phase was observed only in the PHTP/CPDT system.
