This system was studied by Pochtakova (Ref. I), and by Dmitrevskaya and Sokolov
(Ref. 2): according to both papers, continuous series of solid solutions ought to be
Both components, however, form liquid crystals (see Preface, Table 2). Consequently the
fusion temperatures, Tfas (l)= 669 K (396 °C; Refs. I, 2), and Tfus (2)= 533 K (260 °C;Ref. 1) or 535 K (262 C; Ref. 2), are actually to be identified with the clearing
temperatures, the corresponding values...
