Universita' di Pavia (ITALY).
This system was studied only by Dmitrevskaya and Sokolov (Ref. I), who claimed that
continuous series of solid solutions exist.
Both components, however, form liquid crystals (see Preface, Table 1). Consequently: (i)
the fusion temperatures, Tfus (l)- 717 K (444 °C) and Tfus (2)- 630 K (357 °C) given in
Ref. I, are actually to be identified with the clearing temperatures (the corresponding
values from Preface, Table 1 being 716+2 K and 631+4 K, respectively); (ii) the
transition temperatures Tt...
