Fe—Th Iron—Thorium

  • Ortrud Kubaschewski von Goldbeck


The phase relationships of the Fe-Th system have been established by Thomson [1, 2] who has studied the system over the entire range of compositions at temperatures between 800°C and the liquidus. Further clarification of the nature and crystal structure of the intermediate phases has been undertaken by Johnson et al. [3] (Fe17Th2), Smith and Hansen [4] and Matthias et al. [5] (Fe3Th7) and Buschow and van der Goot [6] [7–10] (Fe7Th2).
