The Zn-In system is shown to have a submerged miscibility gap in the liquid state. This and the resulting monotectic reaction can be accessed by purifying the alloy with a zinc chloride slag. The metallography of slowly cooled {ZnCl_2} slag enclosed alloys reveals a variety of monotectic microstructures including those characteristic of cooperative growth. The monotectic second liquid is often plate-shaped. The special role of the anisotropy of surface energy of zinc in the evolution of such microstructural features is elucidated.
