Summary

The few experimental investigations published in literature deal mainly with the Al-rich corner. The most recent review was presented in [1]. Several ternary phases were reported. There were a lot of inconsistencies in the literature regarding the number of phases, there compositions and stability. This prompted our experimental work and thermodynamic investigation. The results of this work mill be published in detail in [2, 3].

The experimental investigation was carried out parallel with thermodynamic calculation. It helped to select key samples and check results of modeling.
