- Complete collection of phase diagrams;
- Up-to-date experimental information and bibliography on thermochemical data;
- Formation enthalpies as predicted by the Miedema model for binary solid and liquid solutions and compounds.
The first volume in this series presents a complete collection of heat of formation data on binary intermetallic compounds that contain at least one transition metal.
Both solid compounds and liquid alloys are considered. A complete table of model predictions is given for systems which lack this experimental information and the origin of the model and the accuracy of the predictions are discussed extensively. Furthermore, the authors demonstrate the applicability of the atomic model in predicting energy effects in metal science in general. When surface energies and vacancy-formation energies of pure metals and model values for enthalpies of alloying are available, one can deal with a large variety of problems. Examples include the heat of reaction in metal chemistry, formation of ternary hydrides, stability of solid-solution phases, interfacial energies, surfaces and interfacial segregation, and the heat of absorption for metallic adsorbates and substrates. Examples relevant to basic physics include core-level shifts in alloys, Mössbauer isomer shift and charge transfer in binary metallic systems.

A new series of books with special interest for metallurgists ... A useful reference book presenting a complete collection of heat of formation data on binary metallics that contain at least one transition metal ... Of special interest to rare earthers is the author's treatment of the valence states of the rare earths, their enthalpies of vaporization, and the hydrides.
...it will be invaluable in all materials research laboratories and libraries for its many tabulations of thermodynamic properties of alloys and intermetallic systems.

... this volume is a valuable tool owing to the fact that recent developments concerning structural aspects of solids are presented in their context. Not only is it the extensive ground that is covered but also the depth and accuracy of the discussion that give Hafners article its special merit.
