Join

  • Join
    The region of a phase diagram representing all mixtures that can be formed from a given number of selected compositions. A join may be binary (straight line), ternary (plane), etc., depending on the number of selected compositions, which need not be compounds. Each selected composition, however, must be incapable of formation from the others.
