Phase relations in the Pt-GdPt portion of the system have been determined at 1100 K by X-ray and microscopic examination of quenched samples equilibrated for 610 ks. Five compounds have been identified; $GdPt_5$, $`GdPt_3'$, $GdPt_2$, $Gd_3Pt_4$ and GdPt. The phase $GdPt_3$ with $AuCu_3$ type structure has not been reported earlier. The compound $GdPt_3$ is nonstoichiometric with a homogeneity range extending from 23 to 28 mol% Gd. The phase $GdPt_2$ has a narrower nonstoichiometric range varying from 32 to 33 mol% Gd. The relative partial Gibbs' energy of Gd in the two-phase fields has been determined in the temperature range 925-1125 K using solid state galvanic cells incorporating single crystal $CaF_2$ as the solid electrolyte and an equimolar mixture of $Gd + GdF_3$ as the reference electrode.
