E. Post, J. Blumm

A phase diagram portrays the equilibrium conditions between the thermodynamically separated phases or it shows which phases are present in the material system at different temperatures, pressures and compositions. Thermoanalytical methods play an important role in establishing binary and ternary phase diagrams. They are based on the principle that, when a phase transition occurs, the physical, chemical and/or structural properties change.
