The palladium-zirconium phase diagram has been re-investigated over its entire composition range. The revised diagram includes two intermediate phases. Pd4Zr3 and Pd11Zr9, which did not appear in previous studies. The crystal structures of the new phases resemble the B2-type structure although the atoms are displaced significantly from the cubic lattice sites. The present observations are discussed and compared with similar results from the related systems Ni-Ti and Rh-Zr.
