AbstractThe first order ternary interaction parameters of bismuth in molten copper containing either iron, arsenic or antimony have been evaluated using a pseudo equilibrium process at temperatures between 1398 K and 1473 K. The isopiestic distribution technique developed in this investigation yielded the following results: εFeBi=[(1.11x10⁶)/T]- 754 εAsBi=[(4.4x10⁴)/T]-24 εSbBi=-11 These results, coupled with other activity data, have been used to calculate the isoactivity curves for each constituent in the copper rich corner of each ternary system. The basis for the ternary interactions associated with εFeBi, εAsBi and εSbBi are also discussed.
