Phase Diagram and Thermal Analysis Charts

The basic relationship between binary phase diagrams and the thermal analysis charts is described. The phase diagram of Al-Mg system is determined based on the DSC charts. An interesting mystery is given on the freezing behavior of water-ethyl alcohol system; The DSC charts cannot be interpreted based on the simple phase diagram.
