Abstract

The thermodynamic principles of conventional (T-x, P-T) phase diagrams and solubility (log ΣK-x) diagrams depicting solid-solute phase equilibria in aqueous solution are derived from a unifying point of view. It is shown that thermodynamic quantities necessary for the construction of conventional phase diagrams can be obtained from solubility measurements. The unary system calcite-aragonite and the binary system aragonite-strontianite, where solubility data are available over the whole compositional range, have been selected as examples. In the latter case, the constraint of constant composition of the solid phase leading to a metastable equilibrium with the respective solute species is an essential point in the thermodynamic derivation and was observed experimentally as well.
