Silver has played a critical role in the fabrication of metal/ high-Tc superconductor composites. Phase equilibrium in the binary PbO–Ag and CuO–Ag systems has been investigated using differential thermal analysis (DTA), thermogravimetry (TG), and X-ray diffractometry (XRD) techniques. Composition versus temperature diagrams have been established for these systems in air. Eutectic reactions CuO + Ag = L at a composition of Ag = 98.6 mol% and 932°± 3°C for the CuO–Ag system and PbO + Ag = L at a composition of Ag = 8.3 mol% and 825°± 3°C for the PbO–Ag system have been detected. The CuO–Ag system has two immiscible liquid phases in the composition regime of Ag = 30.6–98 mol%, and there are two immiscible liquid phases at the composition range of Ag = 11.7–95.7 mol% in the PbO–Ag system.
